Arts Deployed: A Practical Guide to Support Arts, Health, and Well-Being Across the Military Continuum Part One - An Introduction
Americans for the Arts and the American Legion Auxiliary have joined forces to create a three part guide for starting a dialogue in your community to engage military service members, veterans, their families and caregivers through the arts to facilitate healing and well-being. In the first webinar, we invite you to learn the many ways the arts can be "deployed" in the community to serve the needs of local military and veteran populations by examples of existing programs at the local, state, and national levels. We will introduce the partnering agencies and how they are working together to create this three part guide to connect the Arts sector with the MilVet sector and where to find both sectors in your community, including how to search, or join, the National Initiative for Arts & Health in the Military's online National Directory.
