Regional Arts Development Fund Regional Arts Development Fund

The Regional Arts Development Program (RADF) is a Queensland Government initiative through Arts Queensland and McKinlay Shire Council to support local arts and culture. For further information please contact RADF Liason Officer 47467166, the RADF committee or visit the Arts Queensland Website. RADF is a highly successful state and local government partnership that supports local artists and arts and cultural activities in Queensland communities. 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.

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, please contact the RADF Liaison Officer for more information.
