Surviving The Long Wars: Veteran’s Triennial Summit

March 16, 2023 @ 10:00 AM - March 17, 2023 @ 6:00 PM

From the “American Indian Wars” to the “Global War on Terror,” the SURVIVING THE LONG WARS (STLW) summit explores the multiple, overlapping histories that shape our understanding of warfare, as well as alternative visions of peace, healing, and justice generated by diverse communities impacted by war. The summit features the STLW performance program and concluding discussion series of the yearlong Dialogues on the Experience of War program, funded in part by The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

There will also be poetry readings, panels, art making and movement workshops, a portfolio review, exhibition tours, fifteen-minute Open Platform presentations, and more. The programming will emphasize building relationships and community care.
