Celebrating women worldwide for their creative expression, this multimedia exhibition explored the ten-year history and social impact of WBB. Boxes were also exhibited by Youth Beyond Borders and Girls Inc.
WBB is an inspiring, thought-provoking and aesthetically thrilling project. The connections it has fostered between nations and among women are remarkable. It also becomes a testament to the unbounded possibilities of human creativity, tested in the seemingly simple transformation of a small wooden box.

Unabashed idealism was at the core of the effort, as noted in the mission statement explaining that the project ‘challenges limiting categories and shifts toward a reality beyond divisions of class,politics, race, creed, and geography.’ Those would be lofty words filled with air were it not for the evidence amassed here.
