Schelde Bridge

Schelde Bridge


A PROJECT to connect people on both sides of the Schelde river for a special mission; to build bridges of friendship and faith between young people from different churches, cultures and ethnic groups, creating teams of friends with the intent to build briges and break down walls; to have a renewed and contructive influence in their world at home.

This does not just happen! Professionals of different sorts are recruited to initiate this process, maybe even guide it. One such a professional is BRUCE KUHN. His specialty is drama and acting. As trained and experienced Broadway-actor Bruce teaches young people to soar above their own expectations presenting themselves with confidence and poise.

Bruce combines his professional possibilities to the Bridges Over The Schelde. For want to find twelve young people as of age 15 to commit to an eight hour training between now and the middle of September. Six on the Zeeland side of the Schelde, six on the Antwerp side.

The first session is a four-hour training. Anyone interested can choose between three different dates/times.
