2016 NorCATA Conference
Interested in getting your company or brand in front of a concentrated audience of credentialed and licensed art therapists? Want to be associated with new neurodevelopmental and humanistic approaches to trauma and healing?
The Northern California Art Therapy Association (NorCATA)’s bi-annual conference will take place on September 16-18, 2016 at the DoubleTree by Hilton at the Berkeley Marina. This year marks our first conference with attendees and presenters from five western states. Our conferences are a magnet event for art therapists, clinicians, educators, students, interns, counselors, and professionals from allied fields. You can increase your visibility by participating in a variety of opportunities including advertising, sponsorships, and exhibits.
The conference theme focuses on the right brain in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy that has been the genesis of new models of treatment for relational or complex trauma. Hospitals, community clinics, and rehabilitation centers recognize that the visual arts and the creative process of art making enhance recovery, health and wellness.
Our goal is to raise $50,000+ which will be used to help fund scholarships for new master’s level and doctoral students, to promote the therapeutic use of art throughout Northern California, to promote and participate in community mental health awareness activities, and to promote public awareness of art therapy through instructional presentations to community agencies, and workshops, and conferences such as this one.
In order to meet our goal, we are asking for sponsorships from local businesses. Your marketing resources will help you reach individuals who buy a wide range of products and services used by their hospitals, medical centers, educational institutions, private and group practices, community and civic organization, and related facilities. As a sponsor, your name will be placed on various materials and banners that publicize the event as well as being announced verbally at the event itself.
If you have any questions or concerns in the meantime, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks in advance for your consideration - we look forward to working with you this year!
