ADF Arts for Recovery, Resilience, Teamwork and Skills Program

The ADF Arts for Recovery, Resilience, Teamwork and Skills (ARRTS) Program offers a supportive learning environment to assist personnel in their individual recovery. Members continuing in service and those who may shortly transition to civilian life will benefit from participation.

The ADF Arts for Recovery, Resilience, Teamwork and Skills Program (ARRTS) is an art-based program to assist permanent ADF and Reservist personnel facing health and well-being challenges, or seeking to 're-set' themselves by rebuilding their confidence and resilience.

ARRTS is a supportive, non-rank, military uniform-free learning environment. No previous experience or training in the arts is required as training and mentoring will be provided by civilian arts subject matter experts.

Service personnel continuing in the ADF, and those who may shortly transition to civilian life, will both benefit from participation in ARRTS. All program associated travel and subsistence will be funded by ARRTS.

The four-week residential Canberra-based program comprises three artistic streams: visual arts; music and rhythm; and creative writing.

The schedule for upcoming ARRTS Programs are:

  • 19.2 03–29 November 2019
  • 20.1 10 May–05 June 2020
  • 20.1 02–27 November 2020

 

Applications for ADF ARRTS Program 19.2 close 07 October 2019.
