Regional Queensland arts and culture experiences to benefit from funding
$4.38 million from Queensland’s Regional Arts Development Fund 2021 - 2022 will support the activation of hundreds of community-led regional arts and cultural experiences .
The Queensland Government is investing $2.08 million through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) in 2021-22, matched with a contribution of approximately $2.3 million from 59 councils across the state.
Queensland Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch noted that despite the impact and challenges of COVID-19, the innovative RADF arts and cultural experiences developed and presented throughout Queensland demonstrate the creativity, resilience and adaptability within the arts sector.
Minister Enoch highlighted “over the past financial year RADF has provided funding for projects as diverse as hip hop workshops in the Lockyer Valley, to a new mural in Wallumbilla’s main street showcasing locals, and a public art piano in the Mackay region.
“RADF investment in 2021–2022 will maintain the momentum with an exciting variety of projects which will continue to provide valuable social, health and economic outcomes.
Last year the State Government released Creative Together 2020-2030: A 10-Year Roadmap for arts, culture and creativity, and RADF is an important program that supports several of the roadmap’s priorities, including strengthening Queensland communities and activating local places.
For more information about RADF, applicants are encouraged to visit their local council’s website or www.arts.qld.gov.au.
