Regional Arts Development Fund
The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and local government which invests in quality arts and cultural experiences across Queensland based on locally determined priorities.
RADF promotes the role and value of arts, culture and heritage as key drivers of diverse and inclusive communities and strong regions; and provides training, education and employment opportunities for Queensland artist and local communities.

A funding pool will continue to be offered annually. This will be delivered over two funding rounds and assessed by the RADF Advisory Group.
There are now new guidelines and application form. Please scroll down to view, save and print these forms.
The outcome reporting form has also changed requiring you to capture more audience / participant / partner feedback, and evaluate the outcomes of your activities (for grants over $10,000 only). This will enable us to better demonstrate how the program benefits our community and justify future proposals to the State Government. The outcome report templates can also be viewed at the bottom of this page.
