TANSA is having a hiatus. Nicola is no longer employed at Laidlaw College subsequent to last year’s massive restructure.
Many thanks to everyone for your support over the last 7 years or so.
Some TANSA sessions may resume later in the year from Vaughan Park.
In the meantime mark your calendars for a Conference on Ecology and Hope, Jan 8th, 2016. Celia Deane-Drummond will be the keynote speaker. More information shortly.
Anyone wishing to contact Nicola can do so at hoggard.n (at) gmail.com
