BolderLife is a 501c3 non-profit that supports emotional education and growth with programming aimed at high-school students and the wider community. We introduce difficult and taboo topics through film, theatre, and dance, then deepen the conversation with professional speakers and workshops that help audiences explore discomfort, cultivate mindfulness and live in courage. Our event brings community together to learn and grow both locally at our yearly event and internationally through our live-stream.

Every year we bring in talented and skilled artists and educators to explore life and inspire change, and we look forward to bringing you another amazing festival in 2014. In the meantime, get out there and live boldly!

The 2014 BolderLife Festival will be held during the week of October 13th-19th.
