About the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF)

RADF is an annual partnership between the Queensland Government (ARTS Queensland) and Redland City Council. This partnership has been operational for over 20 years. During this time the arts and cultural life of the Redlands Coast has grown exponentially.

The RADF grant is seen as seed funding to kick-start and assist new and emerging artists and creatives in the region. The funding cycle is available for two rounds a year as well as a RADF Quick Response round which is open all year depending on the funds available.

There are two types of funding available with community project funding (up to a maximum of $10,000) and professional development/quick response funding for individuals or groups ($2,000 or $4,000 respectively).

Applications close on 31 May at midnight.
