Be Part of a Beautiful New Project
COTA SA wants to hear all about your COVID-19 experiences from behind the COVID curtain. What are you hating, what are you loving, what are you doing to fill in your days... all those jobs you've been putting off or nothing at all? COTA SA is an older people's movement run by, for and with older people.
Postcards From Behind The COVID Curtain
The South Australian Government has funded Postcards from behind the COVID curtain (POSTCARDS) as an opportunity for older South Australians to record their experiences during this extraordinary period.
How to take part:
Contact COTA SA to register and you will receive a pack with two Postcards. Postcard 1 - Is a reply paid postcard [no stamp required] which you simply fill in with your COVID 19 experience; a story, a sketch, a poem, a letter - or anything else you can think of as long as it is in your own handwriting, then pop in the post back to us. At the end of the project, they will collate and share the postcards in an exhibition as part of ZestFest 2021. Postcard 2 - Can be sent to anyone you choose. You may wish to rekindle contact with someone you have lost touch with, a mate who may need cheering up, a new friend, or pop it in a neighbour's letterbox. You are encouraged to use this small act of kindness to bring a smile to someone during the COVID-19 restrictions.
Free Postcards: To get your pack and be part of this wonderful project please contact COTA SA by: Phone - 08 8232 0422 Email - firstname.lastname@example.org Mail - GPO Box 1583, Adelaide SA 5001
Please include your name, phone number, postal address and how many packs you would like sent (if you are ordering for a friend or organisation).
Postcards From Behind the COVID Curtain is a ZestFest project, designed to encourage South Australians aged 50 plus to reflect on the highs and lows of the COVID lockdown measures and to share these with COTA SA so they can form an exhibit and to keep a non-electronic repository of older peoples experience during this unusual time in our lives.
