Life Stories with Veteran communities
Coming Home to the Arts bridges the gap between military and civilian worlds by providing veterans, veteran families and community members with regular arts engagement that positively impacts on mental health and wellbeing. Re-Live’s work is demonstrating how the arts can combat isolation and loneliness, and support veterans to feel a part of a new community through a programme of communal singing (Coming Home Choir), and Life Story Theatre performances (The Return).
