The story of the soldier, the Marine, the men and the women and the journeys within the military service in a time of war is the basis for this project.

Utilizing uniforms worn in combat, veterans cut, cook, beat and form sheets of paper out of their uniforms. In this way, veterans are able to use the transformative process of papermaking to reclaim their uniform as art and begin to reconcile their experiences as a soldier in war.

The Combat Paper Project is a collaboration initiated by Drew Matott and Drew Cameron, involving war veterans, activists and artists.

Join the the Combat Paper vets and artists for an interactive evening where art meets activism. Paper already made from uniforms at Magnolia Editions studio and Mills College paper studio in Oakland days prior will be available for creating art in the forms of poems or letters typed with a type writer, silk screening, painting, book binding, you name it! Be creative, feel free to bring supplies you would need to do art with paper. Share political poems or songs or works you may have.

The day will begin with a introduction to the project, with readings from the Warrior Writers book compiled of poems, essays, and letters from anti war veterans, performances by vets and YOU, too! We will then break off into groups and create different types of art with the combat paper and have discussions while working.
