Shout! For Women Veterans

SHOUT! is a yearly event to celebrate women veterans, inspired by the notion that the arts encourage expression, healing, and foster community connection. Now in its seventh year, this event attracts hundreds of veterans and supporters to share in the artistic expression of women veterans through photography, painting, mixed media, and the written word. SHOUT! raises awareness about the issues facing women veterans and explores the intersections of art, community, health and healing.
