about angela & Maria francisca

We believe that people deserve more than food, clothing and shelter.


The ART BRIDGES is run by Angela Maria Arbelaez, fine art historian, humanitarian activist and graduate of Lomosov Moscow University (1991), along with the Greek-Colombian Maria Francisca Rocca Arbeláez, violinist, music teacher and graduate of the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance.

An extensive network of volunteers is a critical component of our success. We are thankful to be supported by art therapists, cultural mediators, social workers and visiting artists from such countries as The United States of America, Ireland, Canada, Spain, South Korea, Greece, Germany, Israel,Venezuela and India.
