CBAW is coming to Dallas!
Kimbal Musk & Christiana Wyly Musk
We’re bringing Community Building Art Works' award-winning Service Member and Veteran Arts Programs to Dallas in 2020. Join us for our kick-off afternoon of film, poetry, and maybe some live music and surprise guest performances.
There will be performances by USMC Veteran Joe Merritt and USAF Veteran Belena Marquez, and a community screening of "We Are Not Done Yet," a 40 minute HBO Documentary that follows 10 United States Veterans, including Marquez and Merritt, through the process of sharing their stories through poetry.
The DFW region is home to approximately 386,358 veterans who comprise 8.1 percent of the adult DFW population, making it one of the denser veteran communities in the nation. Dallas also has the largest contiguous urban arts district in the nation, so it's a perfect place for us to take our work next. The Veteran Women's Enterprise Center focuses on supporting women veteran entrepreneurs to live their best lives personally and professionally. We are so excited to join forces with them and with the Dallas community to expand our programs to meet their needs.
