Regional Arts Development Fund
The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is delivered as a partnership between the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and eligible local councils across the state.
RADF promotes the role and value of arts, culture and heritage as key drivers of diverse and inclusive communities and strong regions. RADF invests in local arts and cultural priorities, as determined by local communities, across Queensland.
The Quilpie Shire Council RADF committee is comprised of both community and council members and provides recommendations contributing to the ongoing implementation of the program. Applications are assessed by the committee against a set of criteria based on key performance outcomes provided by Arts Queensland and the locally determined priorities.
