Check out Telling Care Cafe: Veterans’ Journeys Home on May 31, 6-8pm, a free event presented by Wurzweiler Care Cafe in Partnership with The Telling Project. Light refreshments will be served.
Telling Care Cafe: Veterans’ Journeys Home is a storytelling event in which U.S. military veterans talk about their experiences in the U.S. Military, whether in Vietnam, Iraq, or on the home front. They describe the events they still carry with them, how their service continues to shape them, and what it means to be a veteran in New York City. They speak candidly about everything from mental health to raising families to finding one’s purpose, from the doubts and struggles they quietly endure to their best hopes for tomorrow.
Max Rayneard, PhD, is the co-creator of The Telling Project process and an award-winning writer/director of dozens of Telling Project productions nationwide. His work has been staged at The Library of Congress’s Coolidge Auditorium, The Guthrie Theater, and the Alley Theater, where Telling: Houston was awarded a Congressional Commendation.
Wurzweiler School of Social Work doctoral and MSW students will be on hand to share helpful resources for veterans and families.
