Exploring Life - Inspiring Change through the Arts and Emotional Education

Bolder Life 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, fine art 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. The 2014 Bolder Life Festival will be held during the week of October 13th-19th.

Exploring Life – Inspiring Change

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 during the week of October 13th-19th, 2014. In the meantime, get out there and live boldly!

Human Trafficking Program

Im shattenHuman trafficking is an issue facing people of all ages, backgrounds and social and economic status, globally and locally. We will discuss, seek to understand and create active awareness of this issue through all facets of the BolderLife Festival experience, including film, fine art, a panel discussion and dance. We are honored to screen the film “Im Schatten der Fremde”. Plus, we welcome members of the Denver Police Department, City Attorney’s office, and Denver City Service Community members and non-profit organizations who work in various avenues in the fight against human and sex trafficking, for a panel discussion hosted by Alexis Newton, from the organization of “Free the Girls.” In addition, talented artists and dancers will offer intense and authentically emotional representation of this very serious and growing issue.

Leaping Woman Blank Ad_ColorWe’re very excited to be introducing our Women’s Leadership Programming…a brand new element we’re adding to our festival line-up this year.  A programming that will transcend age, race, class, culture and sexual identity among women and work towards one common goal.

This year we will be focusing on Domestic Violence with 50% of our programming proceeds benefiting SafeHouse Denver, a non-profit organization which serves victims of domestic violence through both an emergency shelter and  non-residential Counseling and Advocacy Center. Learn more here
