The Military Arts Connection (MAC) program bridges the local military community, local arts community, and military service organizations in El Paso and Teller counties of Colorado. Explore these resources for future opportunities for connection, creativity, healing, and more.
As of 10/5/2023, the grant funding has ended for Military Arts Connection’s free arts experiences for the military community. We are proud to have connected the military community to over 1,000 creative experiences with local artists from 2019-2023.
