Bridges - 10 City Tour

It is no exaggeration to state that the Bridges Tour has been one of the most significant Cultural Diplomacy initiatives ever undertaken between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United States. Over two years, and working in partnership with cultural institutions across the U.S., Bridges attracted an estimated 430,000+ visitors to exhibitions and events across 10 cities and 13 States. Its mission, to encourage people–to–people, community– to–community, and even nation–to–nation dialogue through cultural encounters and exchange, is celebrated in this publication.
