IRCF FUNDED Projects
LASI Website – Create, Community & Continuity Project
Supported with $15,500 to develop the LASI Website – Create, Community & Continuity project. The project improves community engagement and enhances the digital literacy and organisational capacity of Leeton Art Society by investing in a new website and digital literacy program.
The Art Society reflects on the impact of the project:
“The website makes for easy contact within our group, a hub for people to communicate and share. The website is also somewhere for people who don’t know about us to research and contact us.
It has been used very successfully to support our annual exhibition with easy online entry forms on the website. It also makes it easy for our treasurer to keep track of paperwork and payments.
We have done some artist profiles through the website, and it is doing a good job in making the community more aware of the local artists, their styles and what they offer.
We like to keep our group together. We don’t want to lose connection with our members and that’s why we have gone online. “
