In July 2017, CreatiVets partnered with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago to offer a course for veterans to explore the fundamentals of various media, examine them in the context of their ideas, and use these resources to express their experiences of conflict.

CreatiVets is a nonprofit organization that provides disabled veterans with opportunities to address the psychological and emotional needs that arise from combat-related trauma through the visual and performing arts.
