Scenic Rim Regional Council Funds Four Projects With Queensland Government Regional Arts Funding
Projects including community events and arts installations are among four projects in the latest arts grant round from Scenic Rim Regional Council.
In this round of funding from the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), a partnership between the Queensland Government and regional councils, a total of $22,898 in funding support has been provided.
Arts Minister Ros Bates said RADF is Australia’s only locally-delivered regional arts grants program. “In 2011-2012, the Queensland Government allocation to RADF is $2.047 million, with another $1.5 million from 55 Queensland councils. This means more than $3.5 million is available for arts projects across the state,” Ms Bates said.
“From its beginnings in 1991, RADF now supports more than 3,000 arts and cultural projects each year in communities across Queensland.
Projects funded are:
- Tamborine Mountain Arts Collective
- Contribution toward the costs of a feasibility study and concept development research to establish a working and teaching arts and artisans hub on Tamborine Mountain.
- Friends of the Lost World Gallery & Museum Inc
- Funding assistance to stage The Ancient Arts Revival, a series of workshops on a variety of arts and bushcrafts, culminating in an open day exhibition and community festival.
- Kevin Smith
- The development of a theatrical production for the script "Carve" resulting in an inter-regional performance outcome.
- Roberta Shaw
- Financial support to attend the 2012 TAFTA Geelong Textile Forum.
The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between Scenic Rim Regional Council and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland to support local arts and culture.
The successful and long-running RADF program gives communities the flexibility to shape their own arts and cultural priorities.
