When veterans return from their service, they are greeted at arm’s length, labeled to fill in the role that society has built for them. This role, though built with good intention, undermines the humanity that we all share. This robs veterans of their individuality, forcing them to either fit the standard they are being shoved into or become an outcast from both veterans and civilians.
Our mission is to bring about social cohesion between veterans and civilians through a collaborative art project. By blurring the line between these participants, we can underscore that we are all in this together, sharing our lives and humanity, regardless of our past experiences.
We are pleased to present the Silver Bullet Series. We will be releasing original works on T-Shirt and Art Prints. Created by local artists and inspired by veteran stories. Your purchase will help support our on-going work sharing the experiences of veterans through works of original collaborative art with civilians.
Show your support, rock a mean tee. It’s that simple.
First and foremost, your dignity is paramount to us. The strength it takes to own your story, and beyond that, to have the courage to share it for the benefit of others, will always be recognized and appreciated throughout the process.
Regardless of the subject matter, be it funny or tragic, prideful, shameful, or resigned, our veteran participants should feel free to speak their truth.
You can either supply your own veteren-centric story or we can connect you with a veteran for an interview.
Interviews can be done on any aspect of life that makes it worth living, either in celebration or in direct opposition to the circumstances provided, so long as it captures the spirit of the subject’s story.
All are welcome! We accept most forms of media, so long as they fit the theme and meet the standards set in our previous shows.
You will receive the interview, and draft of the story. You will be given a deadline to complete your work in order to make the show, auction, and printed book. If you finish early we are more than happy to accept your work at any point beforehand.
