Join us for our annual veterans day event Saturday Nov. 10 from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. at the OC Fair & Event Center.
Soldiers may never forget what it’s like, but it’s not always easy to describe. With the virtual reality technology of Bravemind, you can see what they’ve seen, feel what they’ve felt, and fear what they’ve feared – all within the safe confines of an exhibition at Heroes Hall. Bravemind, created by USC Institute for Creative Technologies, uses VR to not only immerse viewers into the world of a soldier at war, but to help those in need. Using established therapeutic techniques, Bravemind can help veterans come to terms with PTS symptoms, and the technology can also be used for resilience training prior to deployment. Experience this fascinating and eye-opening exhibition first-hand, and learn about how Bravemind has become a valuable resource for helping our military and veterans.
The voices of veterans come alive at Heroes Hall at OC Fair & Event Center as former military men and women share their very personal and poignant stories of service.
VOICES is the culmination of a six-week veterans’ storytelling workshop
