Denis Waitley

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Program is a Queensland Government (through Arts Queensland) and local government partnership to support arts and cultural activities across the State.

Each year an allocation of funds from Arts Queensland is combined with Council's own contribution to support the RADF program.  This gives Council its annual RADF budget which is then made available to the community.

More information can also be found on the Arts Queensland website at:  www.arts.qld.gov.au/regional-arts-development-fund
