The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between state and local governments which invests in quality arts and cultural experiences across Queensland based on locally determined priorities.

RADF 2017-18 promotes the significance and value of arts, culture and heritage as the key to:
  • Supporting diversity and inclusivity;
  • Growing stronger regions; and
  • Provide training, education and employment opportunities for Queensland artists and local communities.

From 2016, Livingstone Shire Council will deliver locally tailored RADF programs based on the identified priorities, opportunities and capacities of their local communities.  As RADF is also available from other local council's, the program may look different, as each council specifically identifies the ways of working and aspiring artists and cultural groups from their local communities.

For further information on RADF please contact your local council. See below for contact details for the RADF Officer with Livingstone Shire Council.

For information on other programs and opportunities please visit the Arts Queensland website:
