ANZATA recognises, acknowledges and respects the ancestors, elders and families
of all Indigenous peoples of the lands on which we stand and practice.

The arts therapies are a form of psychotherapy utilising creative modalities, including
visual art-making, drama, and dance/movement, within a therapeutic relationship to
improve and inform physical, mental and emotional well-being.


ANZATA is transitioning to a new organisation, ANZACATA, to be launched 1 July 2018.
PLEASE NOTE: No new member applications will be processed until after this date.
