2017 Heroes Voices National Veterans Poetry Contest

Category: Veterans2017-06-04  Rick Harrell
logoHeroes’ Voices helps veterans build confidence and community by connecting them with the power of music and poetry. Veterans raise their voices together at our free workshops, build their skills with our free online guitar lessons, and find resources in their local communities through our on-line database. Launched in the San Francisco Bay Area, we are expanding throughout the USA.

Heroes’ Voices puts the transformational power of music and poetry to work for our veterans by:

1)Creating opportunities for veterans to engage with music and poetry, in settings ranging from psychiatric wards to community centers.
2)Building alliances with other veterans organizations to expand the use of music and poetry in their programs.
3)Providing information and referrals for veterans interested in the arts.
4)Promoting and sponsoring research into music therapy for veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injuries.
