Kristin Beck // The 296 Project
Puppies and paintbrushes: therapy comes in many forms. This project offers active duty and military veterans a safe space to access art supplies that they can use to express themselves. It also offers a space to meet others with shared experiences and begin or continue the healing process from trauma.
Kristin Beck is the subject of a CNN documentary called “Lady Valor” which shows the dichotomy of a Navy SEAL and a transgender journey. The documentary is can be seen on NETFLIX. She is running for Congress in Maryland’s 5th Congressional District. You can follow her on Twitter @theladyvalor.
The 296 Project mission is to promote, fund, and support Art and Expressive Therapies (painting, ceramics, writing, music, etc) as a viable way to heal from trauma or traumatic brain injury.
