Money for local arts
WHITSUNDAY artists will have access to $64,000 in grants for the 2014-15 financial year, under the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF).
Whitsunday Mayor Jennifer Whitney said council had committed $25,927, as in previous years, which guaranteed the Queensland Government commitment of $38,073.
Mayor Whitney said the RADF program provided funding for the development of artistic and cultural activities in the Whitsunday region as well as throughout regional Queensland.
“The program supports locally determined regional arts and cultural development opportunities by providing discrete, short term, project based financial assistance,” she said.
Individuals and organisations are encouraged to seek assistance for a range of initiatives including exhibitions, short term workshops, research and promotion and more.
The current round of RADF grants closes on November 17 for projects starting after December 22. More information is available at www.arts.qld.gov.au/funding/radfcommittees.
