Applications for Round 1 are now open

Opening Friday 16 September until Friday 28 October 2022.

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between state and local governments that invests in quality arts and cultural experiences across Queensland based on locally determined priorities.

RADF is great for funding arts or culturally significant activities, workshops and projects (not just painting!). Check the guidelines or contact Council to see if your project could be funded.

Successful applications are required to submit outcome reports within eight weeks of the project’s completion.

For more information contact the Community Support Officer at community@paroo.qld.gov.au or 4655 8400.
