Connect the Dots Charitable Trust was established in Auckland, New Zealand in 2014 by arts educators Andrea Gaskin & Selina Anderson. The purpose of the charity is to build individual and community capacity through creative arts projects.
Connect the Dots sees the value in provided supported opportunities for passionate educators to develop skills in facilitating art tours and workshops for older people and people living with dementia.
In 2018 we have two interns joining our team: Julia Craig and Kelsey Hankins. Both will be delivering Make Moments programmes as well as working on their own related research project. We are very excited to have them on the team!
Internship Partnership with Auckland University
In partnership with Auckland University, Connect the Dots works alongside undergraduate students as part of the Artsgen 301 – Internship programme during a 3-month period.
Our first intern (Semester 1 2018), Hsin Ju Tung (Dori) has been working on Make Moments programmes and providing essential support for the Connect the Dots Professional Development programme.
Connect the Dots Board of Trustees: Priscilla Brown, Erin McVeigh, Sarah Ferens, Eimi Tamua and Lincoln Jefferson.
Their skills include law, older peoples health, the arts, volunteer management, and council. They are an amazing asset to Connect the Dots and guide our vision and mission into fruition.
