AITAF's mission is to use the powerful shared experience of the arts to start conversations between military and civilian, service member and family member, the world of the arts and the world of practical action.
We bring free artistic experiences to military communities that showcase diverse contemporary works of art.
We use the shared experience of art and/or military training to encourage an exchange of ideas across ranks, and between service members and artists.
We aim to foster resiliency, boost morale, and build community.
We respect both our audience and the work we present by not compromising our standards of artistic excellence.
We bring the highest quality of artists, arts programming and planning to match the commitment, knowledge, and experience of the military community.
We value the diversity of the military and artistic communities by honoring both their differences and shared human experience.
