Apply now for RADF Grants

Burdekin Shire Council

LOCAL residents have until Monday, June 6 to apply for the second round of 2022 Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) projects. 

RADF, a partnership between the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and Burdekin Shire Council, invests in quality arts and cultural ex- periences across Queensland on a local level. 

Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said there would be two rounds of RADF- funded projects in 2022, with applications for projects to be undertaken between July and December now being accepted.

She said the Regional Arts Development Fund had been instrumental in shaping a number of fantastic events and initiatives in the Burdekin over the past few years.

“I encourage any individual or organisation that has an idea, program or project that would directly develop the arts, to consider applying,” Cr McLaughlin said.

“RADF is able to support visual art or design, craft, performing arts, multicultural arts, festivals and literature – the only limits are applicants’ imaginations.”
