The Regional Arts Development Fund

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Noosa Shire Council to support the development of local arts and culture. It supports local arts and cultural development opportunities by providing one-off, short-term, project-based financial assistance.

RADF Grant Rounds

At Noosa Council the RADF Grant applications are assessed by the RADF Committee, which is made up of local 'arts' professionals. The application requires a detailed project plan, a balanced budget and other information.

If you are interested in this funding the first thing you must do is have an in depth discussion with Noosa Council’s Arts and Culture, Community Development Officer about the project and the application process. The contact number is 5329 6558.
