Since 2014, the Veterans and the Arts Initiative has served as an arts and community hub for our local Veterans, Servicemembers, their families, and community members. The Initiative has brought our community together at the Hylton Performing Arts Center to engage with the arts through performances, workshops, lessons, exhibitions, and special events that have featured the arts, including music, visual art, dance, and poetry. The intended benefit of the Veterans and the Arts Initiative is to facilitate community engagement through local arts organizations that establishes lasting connections to the arts and supports strong social relationships within the community.
Please consider supporting the Veterans and the Arts Initiative, so we can continue to provide arts programming, workshops, and lessons to Veterans, Servicemembers, their families, and military caregivers free of charge.
Thank you for your interest in the Veterans and the Arts Initiative at the Hylton Performing Arts Center, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our community events soon!
