Applications for round three of Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) grants, worth about $80,000, close next Wednesday, January 24.

This funding is available for projects commencing after Monday, March 4.

Funds are allocated across three categories – $53,400 is available in the general category, $15,000 for young people and $12,000 for green arts.

The Green Arts category aims to support initiatives that focus on environmentally based arts and cultural practice that highlights issues relating to our unique local biodiversity.

The Young People category works to support young people (12-21 years) to pursue creative career pathways and helps to fund projects and programs run by young people for young people.

RADF is a flexible fund that supports local councils to invest in arts and cultural priorities as determined by local communities across Queensland.

RADF is delivered as a partnership between the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and eligible local councils across the state.
