Welcome to CAVARTS

Your Veteran community for connecting, learning, and growing through the creative arts.

Connect with other Veterans who share a passion for the Arts 🎭

Created by Veterans, for Veterans, the Challenge America Veteran Arts Community (CAVARTS) is an inclusive community that brings together Veterans of various backgrounds who support one another as they connect, learn, and grow through art. 

CAVARTS is a safe and supportive community where Veterans can leverage their creativity and the power of the arts to regain a sense of purpose and belonging in their lives. As an arts community, we come together through the highs and the lows, lifting each other up during hardship, celebrating our wins, and reminiscing over shared stories and our shared interest in the arts.
