Arts and Military Summit Comes to Tacoma on September 26, 2017
Connection between arts, healing, and military to be explored and strengthened
Helping military personnel heal from the complex wounds of our recent wars is a national priority that arts and military leaders in Washington State are embracing. On Tuesday, September 26, 2017, the Washington State Arts Commission (ArtsWA) and the Museum of Glass will host an arts and military summit as part of their participation in Creative Forces: NEA Military Healing Arts Network. Madigan Army Medical Center, one of the clinical sites involved in Creative Forces, is joining ArtsWA in presenting the event at the museum, 1801 Dock St in Tacoma. The museum’s Hot Shop Heroes ‐ Healing in Flames partnership with the Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB) at Joint Base Lewis‐McChord (JBLM), has been particularly effective for participants with traumatic brain injury and post‐traumatic stress, and will be featured during a summit demonstration.
