WE HAVE A NEW PORTAL – A REGISTERED “CGDN”
Community Geographical Domain Name – http://www.fyshwick.act.au/
Yes we are the owner/operators of this new domain name and have linked it to our Website. It is the Fyshwick Community Portal and Fyshwick businesses are being asked to join this community portal for a small fee, a proportion of which will be donated to ASOC. As individual Artists you can register your own Website and/or provide a short outline of your work to me for listing. It would be preferable if you did it yourself. Look up ASOC on the portal page to see an example of what you might choose to list. As we advance in ‘community portal use’ there will be opportunities to place “Art” on the site.
