Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF)

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

The RADF program promotes professional development and employment of artists in regional Queensland. It supports locally determined arts and cultural development opportunities by providing one-off, short-term, project-based financial assistance to groups and individuals in regional Queensland.

Cairns Regional Council offers two funding rounds each year. Council's RADF Committee provides recommendations and contributes to the ongoing implementation of the program.

Applications are assessed by a publicly elected committee against criteria based on program guidelines and the locally determined Arts and Cultural Development Policy.
