These four public programs are designed to bring the Arts, Military + Healing workshop leaders, artists, and participants together with the general public. The exhibitions, lectures, presentations, reception, and performances create a forum for exchange, by highlighting new and on-going projects and resources that bring together the arts, military, and healing practitioners, and ultimately promote creativity, wellness, and resilience in military communities and in American life.
