The Arizona Consortium for the Arts (ACA) and Creative Drill Sergeants (CDS) are actively working on innovative solutions to the many problems our veterans can face after service. One of those problems is when veterans feel disconnected from their communities after arriving home. CDS and ACA are joining forces in a partnership to offer collaborative opportunities for veteran families to heal through art, music and cultural activities. Our nonprofit partnership strives to increase veteran participation, as individuals and families, in our Expressive Arts Programs and Events that include their communities.
This will be a collaborative benefit event to celebrate our partnership and acquire the funding needed to meld our missions as an inclusive effort to bridge gaps between veterans, the public, organizations, businesses, and others with a vested interest in the quality of life our veterans deserve. This effort can literally save lives. We believe that your support in attending and/or as a collaborative partner will increase our chances of successfully helping veterans heal!
The 2019 ARTFALL FESTIVAL will support our fundraising efforts. We will demonstrate how our collaboration can bring together communities to help heal our veterans. Our efforts to combine forces won’t reach their maximum effectiveness unless we have the backing of the entire community to support our veterans, their families, and their communities.
