DGA 2020 AT HOME Winter Programme 

 

FROM 1stSEP / 1stDEC 2020

 

The winter program is going to take a new format this year.  We have arranged for the DGA program to be on ZOOM. This will be new to all of us, so there may be problems!!! We will get the hang of it so please bear with us. We are doing this so we can all enjoy our love of art the best we can in these difficult times.

 

You will have to download ZOOM, which is free. 

When the Winter Programme organisers lead the afternoon session/topics use the DGA meeting id and password to log in. These sessions will last approximately 30mins – 45mins.

 

When the outside demonstrators /lecturer is leading the workshop you will be sent an email invitation with the meeting ID and password. 

During the external demos you will be muted but there will be a break, when you can make a cuppa and ask questions. You can send typed questions to the demonstrator at any time during the meeting.
