For art, for charity, for fun. CowParade is a unique public art exhibition that
doesn't forget its roots -- the communities that host and support it. One of the
basic tenets of CowParade is that it is a charitable endeavor. When CowParade
comes to town, it brings wonderful opportunities to area artists and smiles to
residents and visitors as they experience art in a different and unique form.
But when the exhibition is over, we want to leave something behind.
BRIS is a non-profit organisation, with no political or religious affiliations,
that helps children in crisis and serves as a link between children, adults
and society. BRIS also aims to influence public opinion and decision makers,
as well as increasing adults’ respect for children as individuals.
BRIS aims to strengthen the rights of children and youth and improve their
standards of living, according to the UN convention of children’s rights.
BRIS needs to pay special attention to children in crisis and maintain the opportunity
for children and youth to conduct a dialogue with adults.
BRIS consider their employers to be children and youth, and therefore operations
are based on their needs. The knowledge BRIS receives through conversations
and e-mails via the Children’s Help Line and Bris-mail is an important
source in our work to make the needs of children and youth more visible to adults,
the public and decision makers. The Children’s Help Line and BRIS-mail
provides children up to 18 years old with a secure, anonymous and free-of-charge
access to a BRIS counsellor.
