Arts, Culture & Heritage Funding

Tablelands Regional Council (TRC) has opened another major round of the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) for arts, heritage and cultural projects.

Up to $6000 is available to individuals, groups and organisations.

Previous recipient Peter Whalley-Thompson said RADF funding has allowed for the creation and ongoing promotion of the Herberton Pocket Film Festival.

‘We initially received funds to deliver film-making workshops using smart phones and then a screening during the Herberton Jacaranda Festival.

‘A few years later we applied for another RADF grant to update and expand our web and social media presence.

‘This has greatly increased our engagement with the community, and we now have an ongoing conversation of people telling their stories on film across the region.

‘RADF funding is the reason our good idea became a reality, and the emphasis on supporting the development of skills in an artistic medium is the reason we have such wide engagement with the Tablelands community,’ Mr Whalley-Thompson said.

Find out more and apply online before 5pm Monday 25 March.

Contact the Arts Officer for advice before starting your application.

Small RADF grants of up to $1000 are also available at any time until funds are allocated.

RADF is a partnership between the Queensland Government and TRC to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
