Bullet Points: A Bullets and Bandaids Conversation Series

Bullets and Bandaids is a nonprofit organization that works with veterans through interviews, collaborative storytelling, and artwork. Veterans are paired with civilian writers and artists to create a unique combination of oral history, story, and art that is crafted into a traveling exhibit and accompanying book. Between May 2024 and February 2025, they will present a series of community dialogue events at venues around the state. SC Humanities supported this program series with a Major Grant.

The first “Bullet Points” conversation program will take place on Sunday, May 26 at 1:00 p.m. at Soul Haus Gallery in Columbia. The free event will feature artist Laura Garner-Hine, a two-time Bullets and Bandaids participant, and Executive Director Robert LeHeup. Learn more about Laura Garner-Hine: https://www.artbylaura.net/. The goal of the “Bullet Points” series is to make veteran’s stories and the humanities more accessible to the average South Carolinian.

Other program dates will be added as they are confirmed.

Bullets and Bandaids’ mission is deeply rooted in honoring the unique journeys of veterans and fostering connection between communities. They believe that every veteran’s story is a powerful testament to resilience, courage, and humanity. Through a collaborative platform, they bring together talented writers and artists to translate these narratives into captivating works of art.
