Arts in the Armed Forces
Arts in the Armed Forces 8th Annual Broadway Event
Location: New York City
Issue Area: Quality of Life
Arts in the Armed Forces (AITAF) bridges the cultural gap between the military and the performing arts communities by bringing the best modern American theater to the military, veterans and their families, free of charge. Co-founded by Marine-turned-actor Adam Driver, AITAF programming encourages dialogue between artists and the military/veteran audience. AITAF enlists artists of the highest quality from stage and screen, and chooses thought-provoking content with an eye to what might speak to a particular audience. Through its grant from the Bob Woodruff Foundation, AITAF will perform on Broadway during Veterans Week for an audience of 1,000 New York-area service members, veterans and their families.
