This program is a partnership of the National Endowment for the Arts and the Department of Defense that serves the unique and special needs of military patients and veterans who have been diagnosed with Traumatic Brain Injury and psychological health conditions, as well as their families and caregivers. A core component of the initiative will be to support creative arts therapy programs at a total of 12 military and veteran treatment facilities by 2017. Locations that are currently anticipated to participate in the program include Alaska, California, Maryland, North Carolina, Texas, Virginia and Washington. Other states will likely be joining the network in the coming months. If you would like to be alerted when future sites become available, please fill out this form.

Conceptual Framework Facilitator

Americans for the Arts on behalf of Creative Forces: The NEA Military Healing Arts Network is soliciting proposals for the development of conceptual frameworks for the Creative Arts Therapies (art, music, and dance/movement) and the therapeutic writing program within Creative Forces: NEA Military Healing Arts Network.  In an initial step to establish a theoretical basis for its future research activities, Creative Forces will develop conceptual frameworks for understanding better how the individual creative arts therapy disciplines (and therapeutic writing) function within the entire program. This project will avail fully of existing clinical research tools, paradigms, and expertise within individual creative arts therapy disciplines. Thus, the ultimate goal of the conceptual framework process is to support development of research hypotheses, while also informing recommendations for common inputs, activities, outputs, and intended outcomes (short- and long-term) for the Creative Forces Clinical program.

Deadline for electronic submission is no later than 5:00 pm EDT on October 14th, 2018 to creativeforces@artsusa.org; or by mail postmarked on or before October 14, 2018 Attn: Creative Forces Project Administrator, 1000 Vermont Avenue, NW, 6th Floor, Washington DC  20005.
