North Burnett Regional Council Mayor Rachel Chambers is pleased to announce that Council has been successful in obtaining grant funding of $45,000 through Arts Queensland’s Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), allowing Council to support projects totalling $90,000 for the 2018-19 financial year.

Mayor Chambers advised, “$30,000 is now available to interested and aspiring North Burnett artists through round one of the 2018-19 Regional Arts and Development Fund.”

“If you have an arts or cultural project that fits into our Nuts and Bolts Guideline, I encourage you to submit an application for funding to help bring you project into fruition,” Mayor Chambers said.

Queensland Arts Minister Leeanne Enoch said investing in creative and cultural experiences through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) strengthened regional communities, boosted cultural tourism, and enhanced the quality of life in rural and remote towns and cities.

“RADF is a unique partnership between the Queensland Government and North Burnett Regional Council to support local talent, unite communities and celebrate the arts across the state.

“The Queensland Government, through Arts Queensland, is contributing $2.08 million in 2018-19 in partnership with 58 councils statewide to help deliver cultural experiences which align with local priorities,” Ms Enoch said.

“For your project to be considered, simply submit an application prior to 5pm, Monday, 1 October 2018,” Mayor Chambers said.

Council’s RADF Committee, which includes representatives from each of the six townships, will assess applications on Saturday, 6 October, with successful applicants to be notified within 10 working days… it’s that easy!

For further information on RADF contact Council’s Community Development staff on 1300 696 272 (1300 MY NBRC), email Council or download an application form and guidelines from Council’s website.
