Congratulations to the staff, board and members of the SA Writers’ Centre for winning a South Australian AbaF (Australian Business Arts Foundation) Award last night in a star-studded ceremony at the Don Dunstan Playhouse. The award recognises its ongoing collaboration with the Onkaparinga City Council (which shared the award) to produce the SA Writers’ Festival, a biennial event next scheduled for September 2007. AbaF was established by the Australian Government in 2000 to promote private sector support for the arts. State winners in each category will move on to the national awards, announced later this year. The Big Book Club is a previous winner. (It’s purely a coincidence that I’m on both Boards!)
