Regional Arts Development Fund Regional Arts Development Fund

The Regional Arts Development Program (RADF) is supported by McKinlay Shire Council and is a
highly successful state and local government partnership that supports local artists and arts and cultural activities in Queensland communities. This financial year the RADF program has changed significantly to align more with the needs of our community. Hence there are new funding categories which will lead to exciting local projects.

Current RADF Funding
Funding can be provided for various arts and cultural projects including workshops, support for artists skills development and community groups that have a particular arts project in mind. If you have an opportunity that pops up you can apply for up to $2000 through the Quick Response Round.

Round 3 of the RADF program is now open. Applications close on Monday 20th March 2017.
