Gladstone Region Acting Mayor Chris Trevor said RADF grants provide support for initiatives and activities which have the capacity to deliver benefits for the wider community.
“Round 2 grants for 2018/19 provide valuable funding assistance to support professional and emerging artists and cultural workers living in the Gladstone Region,” Councillor Trevor said.
“Funding can offer benefits in various ways from assisting artists to access professional development opportunities to helping community groups engage a professional artist for workshops or community projects.”
Those who submit an EOI by 4pm, Monday, 5 August are eligible for mentoring assistance with an RADF Committee Member in the development of their funding application.
Applications close 4pm, Friday, 30 August and are assessed by a local committee of dedicated arts and community representatives, who make recommendations of funding to Council.
RADF is a Queensland Government and Gladstone Regional Council partnership to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
