Calling all local artists
THE Cassowary Coast has once again secured funding through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) to help support local artists and performers in our region.
The RADF program is jointly funding by State and Local Government. An Arts Queensland contribution of $39,500 has been approved for the Cassowary Coast Regional Council and will go towards local artists, groups, art workers, cultural workers or project coordinators who contribute to and support our local arts community.
The Cassowary Coast Regional Council RADF 2021-2022 program promotes the role and value of arts, culture and heritage as key drivers to support diversity and inclusivity; grow strong regions; and provide training, education and employment opportunities for local artists and their communities.
We are looking for collaborative and innovative projects. Previous grant recipients include Raymond Blanco for a contemporary First Nation dance concept named ‘Salt Mother’ and a collaboration for the Cassowary Coast historical website design.
Council encourages you to visit our website at www.cassowarycoast.qld.gov.au/radf where you can find information on RADF Guidelines, forms and other useful links that will assist in developing your application.
Once your application is submitted, it will be assessed by the CCRC RADF Committee, a group of individuals which have been appointed by Council to provide advice and guidance. The Committee will recommend applications for Council approval.
Round one for applications, closes on Friday 29 October.
The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the Cassowary Coast Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
