AVAFEST: Healing Veterans through Arts

Monday, 28 October 2019

The Austin Veterans Arts Festival is happening now in studios and venues all over town. It’s visual art, music, poetry, theater and more created by veterans. This week on The Sun Radio Regional Report Kevin Connor talks with festival founder Glenn Towery, himself a Vietnam Vet and an actor and singer, about how creative arts help veterans dealing with PTSD, and hopefully helps to stave off veterans’ suicide, which has reached epidemic rates here in the United States. The festival continues through November 16 and you can hear all about it here. (Artwork: PTSD by Cody Vance courtesy of AVAfest.)
