Applications for creative projects now open
LOCAL organisations, community groups and residents seeking support for creative arts, culture and heritage projects are being urged to apply for grants through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), which is a partnership between Bundaberg Regional Council and the Queensland Government.
Community Services Portfolio spokeswoman Cr Judy Peters said the first round of RADF funding was now open.
"We're urging anyone who needs a financial leg-up for creative arts or culture projects to apply for these grants.
Applications for this round close Friday, September 20 for projects not starting before December this year," Cr Peters said.
"There aren't any limits of the amount of money that can be applied for, but we're suggesting that anyone thinking about applying should discuss their project budget with the RADF Liaison Officer prior to submission."
Cr Peters said previous RADF projects were awarded grants ranging from $250 to more than $15,000.
"If you would like some advice or assistance with your application, you can contact one of the RADF Committee members (contact details are available from Council's website) or the RADF Liaison Officer on 4130 4750 or email firstname.lastname@example.org," she said.
Application forms and copies of the Guidelines for Applicants are available from BRAG (Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery), ChArtS (Childers Arts Space) and the Moncrieff Theatre, or can be downloaded from the Council website: www.bundaberg.qld.gov.au/RADFfunding
