About Us

The Cradle is an online magazine where, with a little faith, you and us play together in order to create new, authentic worlds beyond any constrains and limitations, but with the Love called responsibility, and to celebrate life to its fullness.

We create a space where readers, viewers, writers, and artists expand the human experience by weaving their own stories as chapters into a book that was given to us a long time ago, a book we all share and need, a book called – The Cradle. 

We invite you to cradle with us in THE CRADLE, in search of the Beauty, the one which is sometimes hidden, damaged, confused, misunderstood, unrecognized, unknown or forgotten, but still the Beauty, just waiting to be called out and loved.
