Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF)

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is delivered as a partnership between the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and eligible local councils across the state.

RADF is a flexible fund, enabling local councils to tailor RADF programs to suit the needs of their communities. For further information on RADF please contact your local council. For information on other Arts Queensland programs and opportunities please visit www.arts.qld.gov.au
