When & Where
Veteran Artist Program
Arts, Military + Healing: A Collaborative Initiative, in Washington, DC, May 13-18, 2012, unites the resources of veterans’ organizations, art schools, and national cultural institutions. By bringing artists and art therapists to military communities, we support and value the totality of their contributions to American life. This six-day long series of workshops and public events promote creativity, wellness, and resilience in military communities. Artist-led workshops are intended to particularly attract veterans, service members, and military families of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, as well as professional artists and art therapy specialists who are now working, or hope to work, within military communities. Art exhibition, tours, film screening, dance and theater performances, as well as documentary film project offer a variety of opportunities for exchange and discovery. Project collaborators are located throughout the metropolitan DC area.
