By encouraging and supporting an aesthetic response to military service, we emphasize the unique diversity of military veterans and create a new identity for veterans as artists, altering the view of veterans as always in need of healing. Through community collaborations towards arts programming, we engage our audiences to reflect on what it means to serve in the military (historically and present day) and the unique experiences associated with that service.
