ADF Arts for Recovery, Resilience, Teamwork and Skills Program
The ADF Arts for Recovery, Resilience, Teamwork and Skills Program (ARRTS) is a month long introduction to, and exploration of, artistic disciplines to enable wounded, injured or ill ADF members to experience new life skills and recreation opportunities.
The Program has proved to have significant rehabilitation benefits, with participants reporting improved self-esteem, renewed purpose, increased communication skills and heightened enjoyment.
The Program offers four streams - creative writing, music/rhythm, drama and visual arts - and is designed with the flexibility to respond to the abilities of participants, allowing them to work both as part of a team and individually. No previous experience or training is required.
Interested members, mates or commanders can find out more by emailing ADF.ARRTS [at] defence.gov.au or calling (02) 6265 5923.
The Program runs in Canberra with all costs covered. Held for four weeks during the months of May and November, applications close one month prior.
