ART IN ACTION
Be Proactive Foundation is excited to launch a new Healthy Hearts campaign that empowers teens to improve their health through exercise, the arts and making healthy choices in their lives.
The campaign began on June 4th with the launch of our summer Art In Action program and will continue through the end of 2012. Through Art In Action, teens are using dance, songwriting and other artistic outlets to impact their well-being and educate their peers and the broader community on the importance of having healthy relationships and making positive choices in life.
Youth who participate in the campaign will be challenged to to lead their own Healthy Hearts projects, thanks to support from the Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority.
The Healthy Hearts campaign and summer Art In Action program are being organized in partnership with F22 Studio, Rhythma Dance Studios, SESAC Performing Rights Organization (Music Publishing), Excel Science and other community partners. Funders and in-kind sponsors include: ProActive Management Consulting (PMC), the Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority, Medtech, KISS 104.1FM and Job Corps.
