WDRC gets cre­ative for lo­cal arts and cul­ture

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

IF YOU’RE a lo­cal artist, cre­ative busi­ness or not-for-profit arts or­gan­i­sa­tion, the West­ern Downs Re­gional Coun­cil (WDRC) is look­ing for you.

In­di­vid­ual pro­fes­sional artists, emerg­ing artists and arts work­ers; cul­tural work­ers, in­cor­po­rated arts and cul­tural or­gan­i­sa­tions are en­cour­aged to ap­ply for grants through the Re­gional Arts De­vel­op­ment Fund (RADF).

Coun­cil spokesper­son for com­mu­nity and cul­tural de­vel­op­ment Coun­cil­lor Kaye Maguire said WDRC is an avid sup­porter of devel­op­ing the arts, cul­tural, and her­itage scene within our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

“Our re­gion has a won­der­fully di­verse arts... scene, with many artists do­ing great things,” she said.

In the past, RADF has given a fi­nan­cial help­ing hand to arts, song writ­ing, stitch­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy and as­sisted groups in con­tribut­ing to sig­nif­i­cant com­mu­nity projects.

Round 1 of the 2016/2017 RADF ap­pli­ca­tions close at 5pm, Fe­bru­ary 7.
