Armed Services Arts Partnership

The Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP) builds communities for veterans and military families through programs, performances, and partnerships in the arts. ASAP offers intro-level arts classes, and then partners with organizations in the local community to participants with ongoing opportunities for artistic and personal growth. In the process, ASAP’s programs can improve well-being among participants, allow them to develop a renewed sense of identity and purpose, and bridge divides by connecting veterans and local communities through the arts.
