Sydney Harbour

Hello and Welcome,

New Date Set for Our 2020/21 AGM

Regarding the continued lockdown due to COVID and in discussion with our group's committee, it has been decided to defer our AGM until Tuesday, 23 November 2021.

SMSA Closure and Future Hire

Dear Hirers,

I hope you have all been keeping well over the past few weeks.

In adherence with the current Greater Sydney Lockdown and Stay-at-Home orders, we regretfully confirm that the Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts will remain closed until further notice.

All events and Venue Hire due to take place during September have been cancelled. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss rescheduling your event.

We are now heading towards November and December when your groups are usually making plans to celebrate the end of the year together. Right now, those plans are uncertain, but we remain hopeful and will do all we can to accommodate these events. I will continue to communicate with you on our reopening and any regulations in connection to that.

Looking forward, we have opened our 2022 bookings early so that you can plan for next year. Please get in touch if you'd like to start making tentative bookings. Our current Venue Hire rates will remain unchanged until 31 December 2022.

SMSA staff continue to work from home during the lockdown, and I can still be contacted via email or on 02 9262 7300 from Monday - Thursday.

The SMSA encourages everyone to regularly check the list of hotspot locations and alerts on the NSW Health website and follow their advice.

I appreciate your continued patience and cooperation while we navigate the current circumstances. We look forward to welcoming you back to the SMSA post lockdown.

Kind Regards,

Kylie Campbell
Venue & Building Services Coordinator

Hi Everyone,

Our Web Design group is Saturday the 18th of September at 2 pm. This month it's all about colour or color depending on who is using it. I have found some great resources to help plan a colour scheme and develop gradients for backgrounds and other uses. We can also look at some of the free alternatives to the Adobe suite of programs.
