Put Your Hand Up For Funding

Have you got an arts, heritage or culture project idea and just need the funding?

Tablelands Regional Council (TRC) has opened another major grant round of Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) for just these kinds of projects!

Dr Les Walkling recently received a $5000 RADF grant to help with a photography workshop in Malanda with presenters John de Rooy, Steven Nowakowski, Ross Eason, Murray Anderson and Perrin Clarke.

‘The Tablelands Landscape Photography Workshop would have been impossible to stage without financial assistance from RADF,’ said John de Rooy from Tableland Photography.

‘The $5000 RADF grant enabled Dr. Les Walkling to travel to North Queensland, provided logistics for setting up the workshop, and purchased materials for printing and hanging the exhibition.

‘The two-day workshop was keenly attended by 24 professional and emerging photographers who gained photographic capture, edit and printing skills.

‘The RADF grant also enabled the ticket price to be more affordable for the participants,’ said Mr de Rooy.

Bronwyn Hodgkins, secretary and program director for the Tablelands Folk Festival, is excited about RADF supporting bringing Memetica to the region.

‘Memetica is a giant installation company who will be hosting workshops in Herberton, Ravenshoe and Yungaburra in the lead up to this year’s festival.

‘They will also be involved in a fantastic visual treat and giant lantern parade.

‘Thank you to RADF for this great opportunity,’ said Ms Hodgkins.

The new round is open to individuals, groups and organisations for up to $6000 for arts and cultural projects, including heritage and cultural tourism in the TRC Region.

Details about the grant and application information are available online and at customer service centres.

Contact our Regional Arts Officer before starting your application and ensure it is submitted by 5pm Monday 10 October 2022.

Small RADF grants are available at any time for training, professional development and materials (conditions apply).

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Tablelands Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
