Mackay Regional Council Regional Arts Development Fund

Date/Deadline: 08 Feb, 2023

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is delivered as a partnership between the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and eligible local councils across the state.

RADF promotes the role and value of arts, culture and heritage as key drivers of diverse and inclusive communities and strong regions. RADF invests in local arts and cultural priorities, as determined by local communities, across Queensland.

RADF is a flexible fund, enabling local councils to tailor RADF programs to suit the needs of their community.

HOW DOES RADF OPERATE IN MY LOCAL COMMUNITY?

The Arts Development Officer is the RADF Liaison Officer for the program and manages it in partnership with an RADF Community Committee, receiving support as required from the broader Community Development team.

A community funding pool is offered annually over three rounds. Each round, applications are assessed by a committee of community volunteers – the RADF Advisory Committee.

RADF will only fund up to 65% of the total expenditure in any one application unless otherwise specified.

There are seven categories of funding available for individuals, groups, organisations and council:

• Professional development
• Projects and programs
• Community wellbeing
• Concept development
• Green arts
• Young people
• Resilience (offered only when need arises)
