About Making Mothers Visible

Making Mothers Visible is a large-scale photography project spearheaded by IMOW in association with the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood. IMOW and local communities held Making Mothers Visible events all over the world starting in May, drawing attention to the global statistic that a woman dies every 90 seconds of a complication of pregnancy or childbirth. Events took place in cities including Lagos, Nigeria, Barcelona, Spain, and more.

Making Mothers Visible is part of the INSIDE OUT Project, a global art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. It is a movement taking place all over the world using photographic portraits to discover, reveal and share untold stories. The INSIDE OUT project is a creation of the artist JR, recipient of the 2011 TED Prize.

About MAMA: Motherhood Around the Globe

IMOW’s online exhibition MAMA: Motherhood Around the Globe showcases original creative works, including art, film, music, photography, essays and video interviews, reflecting the stories, visions and voices of motherhood from more than 60 countries. To visit the MAMA exhibition, go to http://mama.globalfundforwomen.org.

About The Inside Out Project

INSIDE OUT is a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. Everyone is challenged to use black and white photographic portraits to discover, reveal and share the untold stories and images of people around the world. These digitally uploaded images are made into posters and sent back to the project’s co-creators, for them to exhibit in their own communities. People can participate as an individual or as part of a group. Posters can be placed anywhere, from a solitary image in an office window, to a wall of an abandoned building, or in a full stadium. These exhibitions will be documented, archived and be made available online at http://www.insideoutproject.net.

The INSIDE OUT project is a creation of the artist JR, recipient of the 2011 TED Prize. Watch JR’s TED Talk here.

About The Ted Prize

The first TED Prize was awarded in 2005, born out of the TED Conference and a vision by the world's leading entrepreneurs, innovators, and entertainers to change the world – one wish at a time. The reward: $100,000, the TED Community's array of talent and expertise, and the leadership of a TED Prize team led by Amy Novogratz. What began as an unparalleled experiment to leverage the resources of the TED Community to spur global change has evolved into one of the most prestigious prizes. From Bono's the ONE Campaign ('05 recipient) to Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution ('10 recipient), the TED Prize is helping to combat poverty, take on religious intolerance, improve global health, tackle child obesity, advance education, and now inspire art around the world. For more information on the TED Prize, visit www.tedprize.org.

About The White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood:

Every day, 1,000 women/girls and 8500 babies die in pregnancy and childbirth from preventable causes.

Almost all of them are in the developing world. This has been going on for too long - yet together we can put an end to it. The White Ribbon Alliance is a global movement, with members uniting to push for change so that all women and new-borns in every country have the life-saving healthcare which is their right. www.whiteribbonalliance.org
