Ethical entrepreneur kicks off Ulster Museum lectures

By Staff Reporter

A Young entrepreneur from Holywood is hosting the first ever Freedom Lecture of the Northern Bank Ulster Museum Lecture Series this week.

Cameron Stewart, director and founder of Ark (Acts of Random Kindness), will deliver a talk entitled 'Freedom to Dream' on Thursday 24th March at the Ulster Museum. Cameron, who founded Ark aged of 18, achieved sales of his clothing line in 15 countries, after just three months in business.

The not-for-profit movement has now sold in over 25 countries.

Acts of Random Kindness' core ethos is that by purchasing Ark° clothing, the individual becomes part of a group interested in carrying out projects to improve the community, or to give someone a boost. This is achieved by individuals performing one Act of Random Kindness (an Ark°) every time they wear the Ark° logo.

Former Sullivan Upper School pupil Cameron said: "Since Ark° was established in 2008 the movement has spread rapidly and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to present the first Freedom Lecture in the stunning surroundings of the Ulster Museum."

The company now has plans to bring the Ark° movement to the US having established a strong online following.

Other speakers in the lecture series include Professor Geoffrey Beattie, wildlife photographers, Jonathan and Angela Scott, Orla Guerin and Lord Melvyn Bragg.
