Bridging Hope Charity Foundation was founded in Australia in 2015 by Tina Tian, a passionate philanthropist in the fields of the arts and mental health. Building on the important work delivered by the Bridging Hope Charity Foundation in China since 2013, the Australian arm of the Foundation continues to gives back to local communities by supporting social change and arts programs across the country.

Bridging Hope Charity Foundation has committed to supporting local and emerging artists operating within the Lower North Shore in Sydney with the announcement in March 2017 of a three-year extension to the TWT Creative Precinct in St Leonards. Through its support of the TWT Creative Precinct, Bridging Hope Charity Foundation provides opportunities for new and emerging artists by providing 4,500 square metres of heavily subsidised inner-Sydney creative space in which artists may create and sell work.
