Community Building Art Works builds bridges between veterans and citizens through creative expression. We use the language of creativity to promote empathy, foster understanding, and create a vibrant, diverse community. We envision a world where the power of creative expression fosters empathy, healing, and unity among veterans and citizens alike. A world where shared experiences of art fuel personal and social transformation, ignite connections, and build understanding across differences. We are a driving force that cultivates communities where every individual, regardless of background, finds their voice, their purpose, and belonging.
