Project 513 - Veteran History and Arts Initiative
- Friday, December 6, 2019 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm
- The Market at Ferguson Farms, Valley Commons Dr, Bozeman, MT 59718
A mixture of undergraduates and graduate students have spent the current semester studying the foundations of Oral History. Putting their skills to practice, they were each paired up with a local veteran in collaboration with the Veteran History and Arts Initiative (VHAI) where they listened, collected, and preserved the stories of each veteran or family member. Project 513 will exhibit the incredible stories that were shared to further amplify the importance of the veterans' voice and experience. Portraits and audio glimpses of each individual will be exhibited to highlight the value of the co-creation partnership between veteran and student. Project 513 will be the start of appreciation, preservation, and artistic representation that is essential for the initiative's mission.
