Beautiful Bold Women's Outreach Performance Inc. is a charitable non-profit organization that recognizes the lack of support in our communities in particular for plus sized women who suffer from a lack of confidence, low self esteem, depression and as well who are targets of exclusion due to their body image.
We were inspired after our involvement with a health and beauty pageant that is geared to provide empowerment to plus sized young women between 16 and 29 called Miss Awoulaba that provide confidence through arts and entertainment.
Beautiful Bold Women's Outreach Performance Inc. has made a strong commitment to target women from all backgrounds and ethnic groups in the G.T.A. and have opted to use music and entertainment as our platform to empower women of all ages who suffer from exclusion and have barriers to living to their full potential by helping them to find and embrace their inner beauty.
Through the art of music and confidence building through dancing and performances we plan on using this platform as a tool to empower women in our community that fall into this category by engaging them in displaying their talent through arts and entertainment removing the hindrance of shame in their body image and to impact their capability.
By giving the women the support that they need for example support and confidence building through performing arts and a chance to interact with other women who as well are enduring self inflicted exclusion as well exclusion in their every day lives at work or school or while commuting due to their body size.
Creating the opportunity for women to show case their musical talents and performances without the barrier of low self esteem due to their body image to hinder them from sharing their talent and strengths.
As a non profit entity we are actively planning our first annual all women's music festival set for August of 2017 and are currently seeking support from our community in order to make our initiative a success.
Thus far we have gained sponsorship from local councillor Pam McConnell and are endeavoring to gain more between now and August 2017.
There are many women in our communities who are suffering from depression, thoughts of suicide who possess a great contribution to our society however due to their shame in their body image which serves as a hindrance from living up to their full capabilities.
Our mission is is to daily thrive to empower and embrace the beauty within all of the women in our community and we seek to have your support in doing so.
Due to the fact that we are not for profit the venue is not for profit and therefore is free for those attending.
