Regional Arts Development Fund

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between Whitsunday Regional Council and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, which invests in quality arts and cultural experiences across Queensland based on locally determined priorities.

RADF promotes the role and value of arts and culture as key drivers to: support diversity and inclusivity; grow strong regions; and provide training, education and employment opportunities for Queensland artists and local communities. 
All projects and activities receiving RADF funding are required to report on their contribution towards RADF 2020/2021 Key Performance Outcomes (KPOs) included in the RADF guidelines.
