With sadness and heavy hearts CATA Steering Committee has decided to disband the group.
A volunteer group, as many of you may know, takes time and lots of energy from busy lives and is challenging to maintain over time. CATA has been promoting the Creative Arts Therapies in the Portland area for the last 12 years! Considering the number of events we have sponsored this is truly remarkable. We have offered workshops, conferences, social hours and provided community outreach. Our goals have been to both support ourselves professionally and to educate the public about the unique contribution of CAT’s for multiple populations, in multiple settings.
We are so grateful to have had 12 years of active and creative participation from the larger CAT community. We have expanded our understanding of and appreciation for the different modalities both in their similarities and uniqueness. We know that the creative process which underlies all CATs will continue to nourish and inform us, both personally and professionally.
It has been an amazing journey of discovery and collaboration!
