FUSION: The E-Zine for Planet Art Therapy

Check out the latest issue of FUSION, the official digital zine of International Art Therapy Organization and Art Therapy Alliance. The Art Therapy Alliance published two volumes and six issues of an e-zine throughout 2008 and 2009; during 2009, the Art Therapy Alliance partnered with IATO to support its mission, values, and vision. The concept of "fusion" was used conceptualize publication for both communities and was developed from our common commitment and outlook to provide quality resources and a sustainable connection for art therapists everywhere. Most of all, both organizations want to deliver a digital publication that reflects people who make art therapy and social transformation "happen" and bring the readers "news you can use." To download FUSION, go to the IATO FUSION PAGE or the Art Therapy Alliance FUSION PAGE.
