Support BIWOC Outdoor Recreation

By: The Outbound Collective + Save to a List

Join us in this narrative by supporting the crowdfunding campaign.

"Expedition Reclamation" is the first film by The Brave Space Project, highlighting 12 Washington-based Black, Indigenous, and Women of Color (BIWOC) exploring their joyful, resilient, and transformative relationships to outdoor recreation. As they snowboard, swim, hike, paddle, snowshoe, and climb, these women restore all BIWOC’s right to dream themselves into spaces of outdoor adventure. We believe the themes of reciprocity, connection, and belonging have the power to foster collective, necessary healing for all outdoor lovers. 

About The Brave Space Project

The Brave Space Project is a multi-racial, women-led storytelling and community-building team on a mission to redefine “outdoorsy” and help restore belonging in the outdoors for Black, Indigenous, and Women of Color (BIWOC).

As lovers of the outdoors, we can’t pretend that “nature doesn’t discriminate.” Outdoor recreation is still predominantly a white space. We’re telling these stories because representation matters if we want to change the narrative about who belongs outdoors. We are telling these stories to honor our ancestors. We are telling these stories to inspire our children and to encourage all outdoor lovers to join us in the movement to foster diversity, inclusion, and belonging for all in the great outdoors.
