The Veterans Art Foundation
Company Overview
V.A.F. is a non profit art foundation for veterans, BY veterans (namely, those who served in either OIF, OEF, or Vietnam.) Our belief, and experience, has been that HEALING can and DOES come– at least in part– through other mediums than simply “talking.” As such, working with a team of veterans, art therapists, and other careworkers/ veteran advocates, we strive to open veterans– particularly… those with the “deep wounds” that only come out of the horrific experience called WAR– to the world of creativity, wherein they can express pain and loss in an environment that is both liberating and SAFE to the veteran. Currently, we are busy pulling together our resources and focusing our efforts on building both our website AND our support base. Along with our fans and friends in central CT and beyond, we are in need of funding for upcoming writing workshops and documentary-filmmaking
