Area: North of the Waikato Contact:Janet McLeod About:
The ANZATA Northern Regional Group was established in 2012 with the intention to connect arts therapists in the North Island of New Zealand. The first meeting was a collaborative workshop between ANZATA members and members of Creative Therapies Association of Aotearoa (CTAA). It gave us the opportunity to sign the Memorandum of Understanding between CTAA and ANZATA that aims to strengthen both organisations through greater collaboration. ANZATA Northern Regional Group is planning regular workshops and will email members when details are available.
