The Telling Project works to deepen our understanding of the military and veterans’ experience. Greater understanding fosters receptivity, easing veterans’ transitions back to civil society, and allowing communities to benefit from the skills and experience they bring with them. Through this understanding, a community deepens its connection to its veterans, itself, and its place in the nation and the world.


Since 2008, The Telling Project has produced fourteen original performances, put over eighty veterans and family members on stage and performed in twelve states and seventeen cities across the nation. It has been featured by the Associated Press, New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, NPR, Inside Higher Ed and others, and supported by the Bob Woodruff Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Library of Congress, The Smithsonian Institution and others.

Target demographics:

We work with military veterans and family members and the communities to which they return upon completing their service.
