Shout! 2011

Celebrating Women Veterans Through the Arts

Swords to Plowshares, a San Francisco-based veteran service organization, developed a unique way to engage with women veterans: SHOUT!: Art by Women Veterans. SHOUT! was inspired by the notion that the arts encourage expression and healing. SHOUT! raises awareness about the issues facing women veterans and explores the intersections of art, community, health and healing.

The third annual Shout! was a three day event which was our most ambitious Shout! to date.
