The Combat Paper Project | Tuesday through Thursday, November 13–15 from 12 noon — 8PM

Written by:

The Combat Paper Project utilizes art making workshops to assist veterans in
reconciling and sharing their personal experiences as well as broadening the
traditional narrative surrounding service and the military culture. Through
paper making workshops veterans use their uniforms worn in combat to create
cathartic works of art. Through this collaboration between civilians and
veterans, a much-needed conversation is generated regarding our
responsibilities to the returned veteran and an understanding of the
dehumanizing effects of warfare.

The workshops, to be held at the UA Book Art and Letterpress Lab, are open to
all, veterans and non-veterans. They will be led by Drew Cameron, a San-
Francisco-based artist, Army veteran and director of the national Combat Paper
Project, which began in 2007 and has since traveled to 24 U.S. states and five
countries.
