Veterans' Voices

In the spirit of celebrating the accomplishments of Minnesota veterans, the Humanities Center hosted an unprecedented event that celebrated 25 Veterans' Voices and recognized the next great generation. The 25 Veterans' Voices Award highlighted veterans who have made exceptional contributions to the community, in business, health care, public safety, education, the arts, the media, government, and any other endeavor which merited recognition. These rising stars have not merely returned to civilian life but are thriving and giving back to their Minnesota communities. These veterans were officially recognized at the 25 Veterans' Voices Award Ceremony held on September 11, 2013.

Telling: Minnesota

Telling: Minnesota is the twelfth original production of The Telling Project. Like all of its predecessors, Telling: Minnesota has been created through an intensive process of interviews with veterans and their family members, scripting from these interviews, performance training, and rehearsal. The individuals on stage are Minnesota military veterans performing their own stories of service. A facilitated discussion led by Ryan Schmidt and a reception hosted by Carleton College will follow the performance. Veteran actors include: Angie R. Batica, Ken Plant, J.A. Moad, Ted John, Vince Undis, and Stu O Rawling.
