Regional Arts Development Fund

The Regional Arts Development Program (RADF) is a partnership between Queensland Government and McKinlay Shire Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland. For further information please contact the RADF Liaison Officer on 4746 7166, the RADF Committee or visit the Arts Queensland Website. The RADF program has changed to align more with the needs of our community. Hence there are new funding categories which will lead to exciting local projects.
