Hi Everyone, I’d like to introduce myself to you all. I’m Catherine Falkenhagen and I’m the new student liaison at NDNU to NORCATA. My role on the board is to bring and take information on NORCATA activities to and from NDNU. I’m also the NDNU GATSA (Graduate Art Therapy Student Association) Outreach Coordinator. The two positions work hand-in-glove with one another and I’m happy to fill this role. GATSA is working on expanding their organization and being more aggressive towards community service projects. If you have any leads or suggestions for outreach projects for NDNU GATSA, please let me know.
Here’s some interesting news from NDNU/GATSA:
Here are some great opportunities coming up:
GATSA is very interested in and welcomes any NORCATA members to visit the NDNU campus and to speak at the group on an array of topics. If you’d like to speak to GATSA, please contact me: email@example.com/650-810-6064.
Our next event is the Annual Business Meeting at Fort Mason on January 26th from 10:30-12pm. Don’t miss out on the chance to engage with your Art Therapy community, meet the board and hear updates of this past year. From 1-4pm, Louvenia Jackson will present, “Stories With Heart: San Mateo County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services Office of Diversity and Equity Story-Telling Series". Louvenia was also a presenter at the NorCATA Conference at Asilomar in September. If you missed the conference, this unique presentation combines computer and videography with storytelling to promote healing. We are happy to offer a longer forum for her beautiful and heartfelt presentation and experiential.
