Apply now for Round 2 of RADF funding

Calling all creative groups in the Balonne Shire! You can now apply for funding under Round 2 of the Balonne Shire Council Regional Arts Development Fund Community Grants program.

Mayor Richard Marsh said groups would have until 5pm Monday 25 March 2019 to lodge their grant applications.

“This is a great opportunity for community groups to bring arts and cultural activities to our local communities,” he said.

“I believe our residents enjoy having the chance to try different workshops and learning new skills, so I would encourage groups to get their applications in.”

Some of the successful workshops from the last round were:

  • Bollon Sewing Group  
  • Dirranbandi Creative Welding  
  • Dirranbandi Restoration
  • Mungindi Upholstery Class

Queensland Arts Minister Leeanne Enoch said investing in creative and cultural experiences through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) strengthened regional communities, boosted cultural tourism, and enhanced the quality of life in rural and remote towns and cities.

“RADF is a unique partnership between the Queensland Government and Balonne Shire Council to support local talent, unite communities and celebrate the arts across the state,” Ms Enoch said.

“The Queensland Government, through Arts Queensland, is contributing $2.08 million in 2018-19 in partnership with 58 councils statewide to help deliver cultural experiences which align with local priorities.”
