*Formerly known as Combat Paper NJ

Exhibit of created works will be displayed on October 4th following the reading in Pollak Theater.

All veterans have a story to tell. For too long, we have lived in a day and age where veterans tend to suppress their experiences – producing a culture of the “silent veteran”. Frontline Paper (formerly known as Combat Paper NJ) is a unique art project that offers artistic tools and professional instruction for all, providing a space to use art and writing to explore experiences, and ultimately share them publicly, all through papermaking.

Frontline Paper’s specialty is the transformative process of making handmade paper from military uniforms. This handmade paper, created through public workshops, provides a platform for veterans and non-veterans to come together to share stories and generate a “new language” and much needed conversations.
