Get your slice of the RADF pie

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

ARTISTS in the Dou­glas re­gion are en­cour­aged to ap­ply for a share of the money in the next round of the Re­gional Arts De­vel­op­ment Fund (RADF).

Ap­pli­ca­tions are now be­ing ac­cepted for the sec­ond of two fund­ing rounds for this year.

RADF is a part­ner­ship be­tween the Cairns Re­gional Coun­cil and the State Gov­ern­ment to sup­port the de­vel­op­ment of qual­ity art and arts prac­tice in the re­gion.

Mayor Bob Man­ning said about $80,000 was avail­able in this fund­ing round.

“The pro­gram sup­ports pro­fes­sional artists and arts work­ers and projects that en­cour­age cul­tural de­vel­op­ment and community in­volve­ment,” he said.

“RADF helps to get worth­while projects off the ground - projects that have pro­vided pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment for our re­gion’s tal­ented artists and that have ben­e­fit­ted our community.”

Projects that have pre­vi­ously re­ceived fund­ing in­clude community the­atre projects, en­vi­ron­men­tal art in­stal­la­tions, mu­si­cal work­shops, his­tor­i­cal ar­chiv­ing and doc­u­men­ta­tion, dance in­dus­try de­vel­op­ment and cul­tural tourism ini­tia­tives.

Prospec­tive ap­pli­cants are en­cour­aged to contact coun­cil’s RADF li­ai­son of­fi­cer at or phone 4032 6644 to re­quest an ap­pli­ca­tion kit. The clos­ing date for ap­pli­ca­tions is Septem­ber 7.
