Interchange – Magnus Johnson and Jim Connor: Elder Heart

Play

This week on Interchange, host Alycin Bektesh speaks with Magnus Johnson and Jim Connor,  members of the Nashville, Indiana based organization Elder Heart. Johnson speaks about his own experiences as a returning veteran that led him to begin creating art with Connor. The process has given them both greater insight to the need for a community wide approach to helping veterans transition.  Through the creation of public art installations, Elder Heart aims to raise awareness on issues such as the rising veteran suicide rate, create a space for veterans and civilians to work together and exchange experiences, and fundraise for veterans in need.
