Residents with an interest in arts and culture are encouraged to apply to join the Burdekin Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Advisory Group, tasked with providing financial support to a diverse range of local projects with two funding rounds annually.
The RADF program provides funding to individual professional artists and organisations for projects which directly develop the local arts scene.
Burdekin Shire Council Deputy Mayor and RADF Chair Cr Sue Perry said the group played an important part in fostering local talent.
“The RADF Advisory Group have assisted various projects over the years through the approval of funding, including visual arts and design, crafts, performing arts, multicultural initiatives, literature and festivals,” Cr Perry said.
“The committee meet on an irregular basis to assess applications received in each funding round through the RADF program and make recommendations to Council. I encourage anyone with an interest in the arts and culture sector to apply to be a part of the group.”
Expressions of interest to join the RADF Advisory Group are now open and close on Monday, 22 June 2020. A nomination form can be collected from Council’s Chambers on Young Street or by visiting https://bit.ly/BurdekinRADF.
