WAMFest 2016 is presented thanks, in part, to generous support from Robert and Patricia Pures, the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, and Morris Arts.
Our theme, The Art of Healing: Soldiers, set the stage for some powerful and moving artistic experiences with an array of veteran poets and writers as well as a host of inspiring musicians. Darden Smith, the Grammy-winning singer/songwriter who founded and leads SongwritingWith:Soldiers, created new songs while at FDU and shared them at the closing performance.
