The State Military & Veterans Arts Initiative

The National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA) and Americans for the Arts are collaborating to increase visibility, understanding, and support for the care of persons across the military continuum (active duty and reserve service members, veterans, their families, and caregivers) and the role the arts can play in their health and wellness.  The goal is to make arts, in its various forms, available to the military continuum as a tool to improve health and wellness.  The Initiative aims to advance the policy, practice, and quality use of arts and creativity as tools for health in the military and for veterans.  For background and research and work by state, click links to the right.
