PORT ADELAIDE ENFIELD COUNCIL GRANT
In January 2021 The Calligraphy Society of South Australia received a COVID 19 Response Grant to enable the purchase of a Document Camera and Data Projector. These items have made it possible for the Society to meet face to face for the Annual General Meeting in February and for subsequent monthly meetings and workshops. Social distancing is ensured through tutors teaching via the camera, computer, and projection onto a wall screen. A booking system for meetings has been introduced and is successfully supporting COVID appropriate attendance at workshops. Remote members can join us via Zoom.
The Calligraphy Society thanks the Port Adelaide Enfield Council for their generous support.
And now a word from our sponsors...
Port Adelaide Enfield Council kindly sponsored the Calligraphy Society of South Australia with a COVID Safe Response Grant. As you are all aware we received $2000 towards our new technology of Document Camera and Data Projector to enable us to meet this year.
