Join us as we recognize Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) Awareness Month with a series of art demonstrations and conversations about using the arts to manage PTS and Military Sexual Trauma (MST). Held in collaboration with Uniting US, a veteran-focused nonprofit arts organization, this six-session series will feature a wide range of artistic disciplines, including painting, fiber arts, woodworking, metalcraft, writing, music, comedy and more. Each session will include a 30-minute artist *talk, allowing you to gain a deeper understanding of the effects and management of PTS and MST. The presentations will be live at the Library of Congress Thomas Jefferson Building. Veteran artist demonstrations and lectures will simultaneously premiere with closed captioning and remain accessible on VHP's Facebook page, and later on the Library of Congress' YouTube channel and website

Each session is free and open to the public; however, onsite attendance requires advance registration. Read this blog post for the daily schedule, then click the link below each session you plan to attend in-person.

*Descriptions of combat, trauma and sexual assault may be distressing to some. VA Medical Center staff will be onsite to support anyone who may need assistance, or you may call the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255, and then press 1.
