Regional Arts Development Fund

Date/Deadline: 07 Oct, 2022

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a Queensland Government partnership, through Arts Queensland and TRC to support local arts and culture. It enables professional and emerging artists and arts practitioners living in regional Queensland to receive support for a wide range of arts and cultural projects.

They manage the local RADF program through a RADF Committee, who assesses the range of applications. They offer quick response Small Grants of up to $1,000 for training and professional development or small scale community projects. There is also a quick response Resource Grant of up to $500 to access a range of resources to support a specific arts project.

They also offer two major funding rounds each year for projects up to $6,000 each, and may consider an out-of-round grant, or a larger amount, on request.

Round 29 closes 4:30pm Friday, 7 October 2022 for projects commencing 1 January 2023.
