EXCITING NEW ANNOUNCEMENT: 1000 Words (You can tell because of the Caps Lock)
The VAF is starting a project called 1000 Words. We want you (veterans and families) to take a picture/artwork/portrait/landscape, etc. that’s yours and write about it.
It can be the story behind your work, poetry, one word 1000 times over, what inspires you, anything in that vein. Or even a letter to someone you love/miss. We’d ideally like it to be 1000 words. It can be anonymous, or public. Just email us the piece, let us know if you want your name on it.
It’s designed to broaden our understanding of art and motivations, along with self or group healing. It can be happy, sad or anything on spectrum.
I’ll start one off by posting it Wednesday. We’ll see what type of momentum and power. Perhaps sometime next year, if we have enough work, maybe we’ll publish it (with your permission of course) in a book. Let’s see where this takes us at the VAF.
The 1000 words includes the title. You can swear, we’ll just label it NSFW.
The VAF has a meetup group online now. We’re fairly busy and average an outing a month. Sometime the group will meet for coffee, other times we’ll do fun stuff like have a photo safari wherever our hearts take us.
