Call for Participants in Veterans Storytelling Exhibit

William & Mary students, faculty, and staff are invited to share stories in a pop-up exhibition across campus entitled Faces of Veterans. Stories can be told in creative formats, as long as they can be consumed and stored digitally.  Exhibit displays will consist of electronic tablets and audio headphones to facilitate an interactive story experience for the audience.

The 2019 Veterans Storytelling Event will provide insight into the experience of service-members transitioning out of the military and into the world of higher education.

Submissions should ideally focus on stories about a veteran’s civilian life before the military, military experiences, and the transition back into civilian life, particularly into higher education. Further discussion could include reasons for enlistment, combat experiences, and the effects that the military experiences have had on the their lives or the lives of others.
