CEO and Founder Caroline Eshak-Liuzzi, a Melbourne based Architect and self-taught artist, established CATA, formally known as the Art Cabriolet, in July 2009. The devastation of the Black Saturday Bushfires saw the organisation posted at Marysville Primary School for three years. During this period, the organisation worked with 35 children/adolescents who collectively experienced one devastation in 35 different ways. Within three years, the organisation expanded its operations to grow its teams of Art Therapists, Artisans, Volunteers, Board Members and Staff Members. Nineteen programs across the states of Queensland and Victoria have been implemented in the last seven years working with children and adolescents braving trauma. In ten years the organisation has reached a staggering 13,740 people dealing with physical, emotional or psychological trauma. From the humble beginnings of 35 children/adolescents in its first three years, CATA has established itself as a custodian of Creative Art Therapy services in Australia.
