What is the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Program?

The RADF Program established in 1991, is a highly successful state and local government partnership that supports professional artists and art practitioners living in regional Queensland.  The Program focuses on the development of quality art and arts practice for and with regional communities.

Its key stakeholders are the Queensland Government Department of Education, Training and the Arts, through Arts Queensland, and the local councils that participate in the program.  These stakeholders support arts and cultural development, RADF committees, regional and remote communities and their arts and cultural workers.


What is funded?

One-off, short term projects that offer professional arts, cultural and heritage opportunities.


How does RADF work?

Your local council bids for an annual allocation of funding for the region from Arts Queensland.  This allocation is managed by your local council through a locally run RADF grants program.
