Arts Connection, Mil-Tree and Diavolo Team up for Veterans’ Movement Workshop,
“Moving the Memories” 

Arts Connection and Mil-Tree present "Moving the Memories," a two-day movement workshop and presentation lead by Diavolo | Architecture in Motion© for veterans, active military and the community. This free workshop will take place at the Joshua Retreat Center in Joshua Tree, California, and is sponsored in part by grant funding from the California Arts Council’s Veterans Initiative in the Arts (VIA). VIA funded projects look to address the needs and improve the lives of California's veterans through the arts. The VIA program seeks to increase equity, access, and opportunities for veterans to participate in quality arts programming that is sensitive and responsive to their unique experiences.

Mil-Tree’s “The Art Of War” was presented at Chaffey College in the Art Building’s Student Gallery March 12th from 12pm - 2pm. The show was curated by Rebecca Trawick, the director and curator of Chaffey’s Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art. The show’s original opening was in Joshua Tree at the Radio Free Joshua Tree Listening Lounge turned art gallery and spoken word salon on October 25th, 2013. It was part of the MBCAC Highway 62 Art Tours co-produced by Mil-Tree and RFJT. It was the brainchild of Carey Hayes and Tami Wood and curated by Mil-Tree’s Paula Jeane. The project successfully fulfilled the mission statement of Mil-Tree:

It is our mission to bring together veterans, active-duty military, and civilians in order to help each other to address the wounds of the soul through communication and art.

Through Mil-Tree, diverse people in the community come together to increase mutual understanding and respect, and are provided with safe opportunities to express, help process, and support the healing of soul wounds, especially those of war, through the power of storytelling, speak-outs, healing retreats, art, music, movement, and nature.
