The U.S. Tour of Duty is part of a cultural revival led by civic-minded military veterans and their allies. A collaboration between HomeFront Rising and the Arts Council for Long Beach, with funding provided by the California Arts Council, our mission is to develop the artistic abilities and creative expression of veterans, and to nurture relationships between veterans and the general public for the greater good. We overcome social and economic challenges with arts-infused concepts applied to housing, sustainability and entrepreneurialism. Our dynamic events in Southern California feature live performances and workshops. A blueprint is being formulated for nationwide deployment in 2018. Click here for the calendar.
