Regional Groups in New Zealand

Northern Regional Group
Area: North of the Waikato
Contact: Janet McLeod
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.
Waikato Regional Group
Area: Hamilton and greater Waikato
Contact:  Donna Ewart

WellArT Wellington Regional Group
Area: Wellington and surrounds
Contact: Sarah Louise Nightingale
The Wellington Regional Group meets on the first Friday morning of each month. Members volunteer to host each meeting and talk about their current work. The meetings take the form of an informal presentation followed by discussion and AOB. Any practising Arts Therapists, qualified or training, are welcome to attend. If you live and/or work in the area and are interested in joining, please contact Sarah.
HOT (Hands on Therapy) Group (Christchurch)
Area: Christchurch and surrounds
Contact: Bettina Evans
The HOT group is a combination of student and registered members of ANZATA, members of the Creative Therapies Association of Aotearoa (CTAA) and other artists and therapists who are interested in working creatively. We are based in Christchurch, but welcome anyone from the rest of the South Island to join us. We meet to make art, have fun, get to know each other, network and share ideas and inspirations.
