WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Active duty military, veterans, military family members, artists, arts and military service organizations, creative arts therapists, healthcare providers, educators, and anyone with an interest in exploring and discussing how best to bring the arts and military communities together in support of military service members, veterans, and their families.
