2014 NATIONAL VETERANS CREATIVE ARTS FESTIVAL

 

Festival - October 27 – November 2, 2014

Events Open to the Public - Sunday, November 2, 2014

Art Exhibit – 12 Noon – 1:45 p.m.

Stage Show - 2:00 p.m.

Milwaukee Theatre 500 West Kilbourn Avenue

Presented by: The Department of Veterans Affairs and the American Legion Auxiliary.

The National Veterans Creative Arts Festival (NVCAF) is the celebration and grand finale stage and art show, which are the culmination of talent competitions in art, creative writing, dance, drama and music for Veterans treated in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) national health care system. Approximately 120 Veterans will exhibit their artwork or perform musical, dance, dramatic or original writing selections in a gala variety show. A professional orchestra will accompany the performance.

All Veterans invited to participate are selected winners of year-long, national fine arts talent competitions in which thousands of Veterans enter, from VA medical facilities across the nation. VA medical facilities incorporate creative arts into their recreation therapy programs to further the rehabilitation milieu for both inpatients and outpatients. This annual competition recognizes the progress and recovery made through that therapy, and raises the visibility of the creative achievements of our Nation’s Veterans after disease, disability or life crisis.
