Women at War is a high-caliber, dynamic theater piece with a cast of veterans and professional actors created using a unique theatrical process designed to catalyze social change.
The 20-minute performance is based on real stories of female veterans. The audience then joins the cast in a 40-minute discussion, working to find solutions to the issues raised in the performance, and even stepping into the story to see if their actions can change the ending.
Hear from a panel of clinicians and veterans who will discuss their transition experience and interactions with providers on November 4, 10am in an interactive panel discussion. They will offer their personal and professional insights about what we should know about today’s NYC veterans, and how we might better support their transition, whether to civilian life or through developmental challenges.
The brief panel discussion will be followed-by a conversation among the audience and panelists about how we might advance our thinking around military cultural competence, thus improving outcomes and quality of life for those who have served.
