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, the Goondiwindi Regional Council lodges a bid to Arts Queensland for an allocation of RADF grants. The bid is prepared by the RADF Liaison Officer and RADF Committee. It reflects the arts and cultural priorities of the Goondiwindi Regional Council and Arts Queensland in the proposed activities and initiatives, which have been informed by community consultation.
The allocation of funds received from Arts Queensland is combined with Council's own contribution and surplus funds rolled over from previous years. This gives Council its annual RADF budget which is then made available to the community through published funding rounds.
