A growing movement to reach the children of our city, Kids Need Art, is sponsoring a Musical and Visual event at The Machine Shop this Saturday, July 28th, at 7pm until closing at 2am.
Organizers and brain-stormers, Julie Moore, and Stephanie and Brian Hackney, have their heart and soul into making Flint a better place to grow up and be a child in!
This is an on going movement, catching momentum, and calls to you personally, to help the cause of Art in kids lives. As a prevention and retention technique, art can lift a child from a hell he or she may have at home, or in his or her neighborhood, to dreams of something bigger, better and safer; not to mention, possibly lucrative!
Arts and crafts can bust the boredom trap, because when there's something to create, an imagination grows, and when the imagination grows, boredom is not a issue.
Please come out and support the efforts, $5.00 at the door for a night of music and new friends, arts and crafts, thought provoking conversation, and community involvement; with the focus on our kids here in Flint and the future of our city. If the kids are not made a priority, our priority, they risk becoming the criminals we have to fear.
