Join Stephan Wolfert (Founding Director, Veterans Center for the Performing Arts), Humanities and Arts Division faculty and students from UC Santa Cruz, and local veterans and their families for a discussion about the vital role that literature and the arts can play in understanding the veteran experience and the challenges and opportunities, for both veterans and civilians, of returning from war.

• Dee Hibbert-Jones (Associate Professor, Art Department; Founder & Co-Director Social Practice Research Center)
• Kimberly Jannarone (Professor, Theater Arts Department; Director, The Odyssey Project)

• Stephan Wolfert (Founding Director, Veterans Center for the Performing Arts

In addition, be sure to join us for Cry Havoc“! a one-person play by military veteran Stephan Wolfert, that seamlessly interweaves Shakespeare’s most famous speeches with personal experience to help us understand the national crises we face when we fail in reintegrating our veterans. One night only.
