Council grants wishes to local artists
  • Saturday 24 July 2010

Sunshine Coast Council will open its September grants round to local artists and cultural groups on 29 July 2010.

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) has $177,000 available to successful applicants.

Community Policy and Programs portfolio holder, Councillor Jenny McKay, encourages creative types to take advantage of this opportunity.

“I remind local artists and groups that the RADF grants round will soon open, and strongly urge them to apply for funds for their special projects,” Cr McKay said.
