BOLD Maui 2007
Thinking of being BOLD in 2010? Join us in 2010 for a year of awareness raising, sisterhood and celebration of mother-friendly childbirth!
BOLD events are small (at kitchen tables, yoga studios, living rooms) and large (300-seat theaters!). BOLD Organizers are mothers...and even not mothers. Most BOLD Organizers have never produced a theater event and our Red Tent Organizers often have never done anything like it before. What every organizer has in common is BOLDness - the desire to jump out of their comfort zone to do what's needs to make childbirth mother-friendly. BOLD events do this through performances of Karen Brody's critically-acclaimed play Birth and through storytelling circles called BOLD Red Tents. So far our events have raised over $150,000 for organizations worldwide working hard to make maternity care mother-friendly.
Applications for both performance and red tents are ready now. Click here for new guidelines. For an application email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And attention birth workers and activists! Consider kick-starting BOLD's 5th year the last week in August with BOLD Founder and Playwright Karen Brody who will be leading a BOLD Body and Soul Retreat for Birth Workers and Activists in the Catskill mountains of New York - culminating in the most wild, women-center, joyous performance on childbirth that will knock-your-BOLD-socks-off! Be sure to make plans early to attend - space is limited. Click here to get put on a list for more details when they are available.
Be BOLD with us in 2010!
