Two information workshops are offering local creatives and innovators all the help and guidance they need to apply for a grant through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), with the next round of funding applications closing in just over two weeks (19 November).
The workshops, to be held this Sunday and Tuesday, will be attended by local members of the RADF committee and provide guests with information about grant guidelines, criteria, items that should be included in their application and the acquittal process, as well as allowing any questions or concerns to be answered.
RADF Committee Chair, Cr Margie Ryder, said the chance for people to have their projects funded was an opportunity that more locals should consider.
“This funding has helped support some amazing projects to help nurture the next generation of creative talent in Townsville,” said Cr Ryder.
“Townsville is definitely the arts and culture capital of Northern Australia and it’s exciting to watch the community grow.”
The RADF Workshops will be held on Sunday 4 November (10am-12pm) and Tuesday 6 November (5:30-7:30pm) and are free to attend, however bookings are essential – click here to book. The next round of RADF applications close at midday on Monday 19 November, with information available here.
RADF is a unique partnership between the Queensland Government and Townsville City Council to support local talent, unite communities and celebrate the arts across the state. The Queensland Government, through Arts Queensland, is contributing $2.08 million in 2018-19 in partnership with 58 councils statewide to help deliver cultural experiences which align with local priorities.
