About Armed Services Arts Partnership

The Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP) empowers veterans, service members, and military family members to re-enter and thrive in their communities through classes, performances, and partnerships in the arts. ASAP focuses on promoting artistic expression and skill development in supportive, six- to twelve-week classes in stand-up comedy, improv, creative writing, and music. Thereafter, ASAP partners with local colleges and arts organizations to provide its graduates with continuous opportunities for artistic and personal growth. In the process, ASAP’s programs can improve well-being among participants, allow them to develop a renewed sense of identity and purpose, and bridge divides by connecting veterans and local communities through the arts. To learn more visit asapasap.org.
