Be BOLD for a Good Cause
By Christine Cupaiuolo — March 25, 2008
BOLD is a very cool media arts/birth advocacy group that’s trying to win a $10,000 grant from Ideablob.com.
The organization’s play, “Birth,” is performed each year on, you guessed it, Labor Day. Here’s more about BOLD, from founder Karen Brody:
BOLD’s mission is to be a global movement to make maternity care mother-friendly through education, truth and action. While it was sparked by performances of my play, Birth, to inspire change BOLD is now much more than my play. […] At all our BOLD events we’re using the arts to educate, tell the truth and take action around maternity care so that birthing options are mother-friendly. Through each event communities take a serious look at how to improve the birthing climate for pregnant mothers. What do mothers want? What do they deserve? What mother-friendly solutions are out there? These are some of the questions BOLD is asking.
