ABOUT ARTS IN THE ARMED FORCES
Founded in 2008, Arts in the Armed Forces serves all branches of the military at US installations domestically and abroad. We choose content that features diverse themes, ages, ethnicities and experiences to create a complex and unique experience for our audiences.
Importantly, after each of AITAF’s events, the artists interact with the audience through a question and answer session. While on base, AITAF team members also take time to train in the specialty of the installation, so there is a true exchange between the artists and service members.
AITAF’s goal is not simply to provide an enjoyable evening, but to use the powerfully emotional shared experience of the arts to start conversations capable of bridging the divides between military and civilian, service member and family member, the world of the arts and the world of practical action.
