*Raising Hull kicks off over Spring Break with Arts Camp for Kids! The Hullion Foundation for the Arts* *Aiming to inspire our youth and foster creativity in the newest Artist* Entertainment industry professionals Ange and Rob Alex moved to Hull in September 2012 and launched a youth Arts program when others said it couldn’t be done. Ange Alex brings 20+ years of acting, improv, modeling, on camera and more. Rob Alex brings 30+ years in music, recording and design. Both Ange and Rob have successful promoted the Arts through their popular entertainment magazine, /The Backstage Beat./ This new Arts program launches in Hull, MA to inspire the children, increase the community business and transform the town. There is no denying the impact the Arts have on a town and students. So why is it so hard to find programs that children can get involved in that don’t cost an arm and a leg? The Hullion Foundation for the Arts was born out of necessity and raised on creativity. It is a place for kids to find their voices as artist and express themselves as individuals. The goal is to raise middle school and high school confidence and to allow these creative minds to understand that the mark they leave on their community and the world needs to be a good one. They /can/ control where their life goes. They have the power inside them to be all they were created to be. Finding their gifts in the arts will allow them to take responsibility for their own lives and their community. They will accept nothing less than their best and we will aim to inspire them to always do what is right, not just because someone is watching. Community service will be mandatory as adults see these kids taking an active role in their community, they too will be inspired. The Foundation is striving to provide these services to kids free of charge, with the support of the community.The program is funded through donations and membership card purchases. Purchasing a card allows cardholders to receive a wide range of discounts around town. For more information on how to donate or purchasing a membership card, visitwww.thehullion.org/member As a way of launching the program and getting the town and kids going on these big ideas, they are having a Spring Break Hullion Camp.
