Description: APPLICATION

 

The CreatiVets Songwriting Program pairs Veterans with accomplished songwriters and music artists to allow them the opportunity to creatively express their story through a song.  The Veteran travels to Nashville, Tennessee, where he or she is met by a Veteran that has gone through the program and can help make the Veteran comfortable with the experience, and then participates in a songwriting session to write a song that is recorded and made available for the Veteran to share with family and friends. Through the songwriting sessions, Veterans are provided with an opportunity to tell their stories in a different way, and they take something from the program that they can keep forever.

 

CreatiVets Visual Arts Program has partnered with The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) for a three-week art program and University of Southern California (USC) for a two week, fully accredited art program for Disabled Veterans [Combated Related Trauma] at no cost to the veteran.  Veterans have full access to studios and equipment at the school, and the program gives them an opportunity to create and discuss art with some of the best art instructors in the country.  Through the process, Veterans learn the benefits of using art as a form of stress and anxiety relief, as well to tell their stories.

 

Upon graduating from the program, the participating veterans can share the pieces they have created at a gallery showcasing their works. Through this showcase, Veterans can help raise public awareness about the challenges facing Veterans and how art can assist in addressing the psychological and emotional struggles that arise from combat-related trauma.
