Arts and the Dimensions of the Veteran Community
ANVAM is a unique cultural institution that provides arts-based engagement and experiences for current and former members of Australia’s military services and families. We invite participants to choose from a range of expressive possibilities that can enhance mental, physical and social wellbeing, and provide relief from the impact of service.
Through the arts, ANVAM aims to showcase the stories of unique, lived experiences during and post-service. Presenting these stories through thoughtfully constructed exhibitions opens up a pathway for new participants to become aware of and involved in ANVAM’s programs, while educating the broader community about the highs and lows of military life.
In partnership with the broader veteran community, ANVAM is working to enhance the post-service support available to the veteran and their family through greater recognition of the role the arts plays in strong communities and fulfilling lives.
