Burdekin artisans and cultural groups have until 21 November to lodge their applications to the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF).
Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said the fund was designed to support local artists and arts and cultural groups to deliver value for the Burdekin community.
“By supporting these groups we can provide opportunities for our residents to get involved in arts and cultural activities,” she said.
“This financial year Council is encouraging applications which will increase participation from children and youth, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and people with disabilities.
“The RADF Committee would also like to see applications for programs for skills development and mentoring for artists and arts workers.”
Cr McLaughlin said the applications would be assessed by the RADF Committee and awarded in January.
“Council has the RADF Guide for Applicants and RADF Application for Funding Form on our website for ease of access,” she said.
“The Guide has all the information that groups and individuals require to ensure their application is correct, including requirements regarding outcomes and acknowledgement.”
The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the Burdekin Shire Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
