RADF seeks nominations from interested community members
August 14, 2018
The Gladstone Region Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is seeking nominations from interested community members during the 2018 Annual General Meeting (AGM), to be held on Wednesday, September 5.
The AGM will be held at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum, cnr Goondoon & Bramston Sts, Gladstone at 6.30pm.
RADF is a Queensland Government and Gladstone Regional Council partnership to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said each year, Council lodged an official application for funding from Arts Queensland.
“Together, with an allocation from Council and through locally determined policy and assessment procedures, RADF funds the development of arts and cultural activities throughout the community,” Councillor Burnett said.
“When groups and individuals make an application to be funded for specific activities each round, it is the role of the committee to decide, in accordance with the RADF guidelines, if the application meets the criteria and is eligible for funding.”
During recent committee training, Creative Region Inc.'s Creative Producer Di Wills, spoke about the great opportunity for participation in the program.
"You have the capacity to positively influence the evolving culture of your community," she said.
Nominations close on Tuesday, September 4 with forms available at Council’s offices, venues and regional libraries or online at www.gragm.qld.gov.au/radf
