Get Online Week Event grants are one-off $1,000 grants available to all Be Connected Network Partners to host a face-to-face or online event during Get Online Week (17-23 October 2022) to promote your organisation and reach new people in your community. This year our campaign is encouraging people to 'Try One Thing'.

Get Online Week is an international digital inclusion campaign organised by Good Things Foundation. Last year, 450 community organisations around Australia held a Get Online Week event, helping people with limited digital skills get more out of life online.

A digital twist on a classic game.

Last year, Surat Library hosted a Get Online Week event by playing a classic game with a creative new digital twist. Combining the rules of bingo with the song-identifying phone app Shazam, attendees raced to name songs using their devices.

Prior to their musical bingo event, attendees were shown how to access and use music streaming apps. Since then, attendees have been using their new skills to stream and listen to music online at home.
