RADF is Australia’s only locally-delivered regional arts grants program.
In 2011-2012, the Queensland Government allocation to RADF is $2.047 million with another $1.5 million from 55 Queensland councils, meaning more than $3.5 million is available for arts projects across the state.
From its beginnings in 1991, RADF now supports more than 3000 arts and cultural projects each year in communities across Queensland.
The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between Gladstone Regional Council and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland to support local arts and culture.
The successful and long-running RADF program gives communities the flexibility to shape their own arts and cultural priorities.
