Triumph Foundation’s 5th Annual Wheelchair Sports Festival


AFT hosted its signature Adaptive Painting Workshop at VCMC, bringing together life altered adult trauma survivors of significant TBI and polytrauma, VCMC Clinic staff, and AFT volunteers in an environment of inspiration, hope, friendship, and new connections all through the magic of art making.

Participants came together sharing stories, smiles, and laughter as paintings were made revealing an abundance of talent in the room. With requests for AFT to return to VCMC in the future, and with many requests by individuals to establish relationships with AFT on a more personal level, the day was yet another success of creating an inspirational and limit free space where individuals discovered and rediscovered aspects of self thought to be lost to trauma.

Artists for Trauma holds a wide array of small to large scale, adaptive arts and entertainment workshops to provide and facilitate empowering healing experiences for participating adult trauma survivors, their family members and care givers.

A large unique component of Artists For Trauma (AFT) is the wonderful generosity of our volunteer AFT artists. These artists are established and highly acclaimed in their various disciplines and artistic communities and richly give back to the community through the blessing of their talent.

Through strategic partnerships, Artists for Trauma, our volunteer artists and other local, national and international individuals and organizations collaborate to provide adaptive, post acute, integrative health services to disfigured and disabled trauma survivors. Artists for Trauma staff and artists facilitate our signature creative, compassionate, free of charge, body, mind and spirit workshops.

We invite you to observe the joyful transformation and impact of the extraordinary Artists for Trauma healing through art experience for the recovering trauma survivor.
