The Telling Project
Active Service Members and Veterans - IT'S TIME TO SPEAK. IT'S TIME TO LISTEN
Riveting Plays a must see and/or attend!
Service Area: Nationwide
Serving: Active Service Members and Veterans
Description: The Telling Project through PLAYS works to deepen our understanding of the military and veterans’ experience. Greater understanding fosters receptivity, easing veterans’ transitions back to civil society, and allowing communities to benefit from the skills and experience they bring with them. Through this understanding, a community deepens its connection to its veterans, itself, and its place in the nation and the world.
The most direct path to understanding veterans’ experience is person-to-person contact. With the dramatic decline in the numbers serving in the military – less than one percent of the population over the last eleven years of war – this contact will not happen through day-to-day life. It must be created and supported. Through performance, The Telling Project puts veterans and military family members in front of their communities to share their stories. We give veterans and military family members the opportunity to speak, and their communities the opportunity to listen. SCHEDULE
