Artist Council

ASAP's Artist Council is designed to provide a meaningful outlet for professional artists to engage with the veteran/military population. Artist Council members support our community by advising on our program model, leading classes and workshops, mentoring our veteran artists, and making strategic introductions to individuals in the arts and entertainment. This approach allows the Artist Council to serve as an important bridge between ASAP’s community and the arts/entertainment world.
