The Regional Arts Development FundOfficial RADF logo

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 to groups and individuals in regional Queensland.

Noosa Council's RADF grants are governed by the Noosa Council Community Grants Policy [257KB] which was last updated in the November 2017 Ordinary Council Meeting.

RADF Committee is looking for skilled volunteers

Applications are open now and closes on 3 August, 2018

Are you a local arts professional who can spare some time to volunteer to assess RADF grants? Noosa Council’s Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) grants program needs new committee members.

The role of a RADF Committee member for Noosa Council is to assess grant applications received by Council for the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) funding program and to provide advice to Council on arts and cultural matters. 

RADF Grants 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 budget and many other details. 

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 Cultural Development Officer about the project and the application process. The contact number is 5329 6558.
