$10,000 arts funding up for grabs
  • Friday 11 July 2014

The Sunshine Coast is home to all kinds of actors, producers, musicians and talented artists – and Sunshine Coast Council is calling on them to apply for a Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) grant to help with their artistic ventures.

The latest major round of RADF – open from July 16 to September 1 – offers up to $10,000 in funding for concept, skills and career development.

Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said the partnership between the Queensland Government and Sunshine Coast Council encouraged a broad range of artists and community groups to develop their art careers and projects.

“With the assistance of RADF funding, I’m proud Council can help boost the careers of our local artists and organisations through skills development or support of their latest creative projects,” Cr McKay said.

“Projects previously funded by RADF include a German concert tour, album recordings, a photographic historical documentary, ceramic technique classes and photographic projects – the list goes on.

“As always, our wonderful Council staff can help you develop your project so it has the best possible chance of success.”

Visit Council’s website for eligibility criteria or contact Council’s RADF liaison officer for assistance – call 5475 7272 or email grants@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.

Applications for minor and major RADF grants will open 9am on Wednesday, July 16 and close 5pm on Monday, September 1, 2014.

The Regional Arts Development Fund is a Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and Sunshine Coast Council partnership to support local arts and culture.
