The Bridges Organization oversees the annual Bridges conference on mathematical connections in art, music, architecture, and culture. Since 1998, Bridges has traveled to North America, Europe, and Asia, and has attracted participants from over thirty countries. The conference features invited speakers, regular and short paper presentations, hands-on workshops, a juried art exhibition, and arts performance events.
