Applications for the latest round of Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) grants are also opening on August 1.
Earlier this year, South Burnett Regional Council fixed the 2020-21 RADF Budget at $33,000, ie. $19,800 from Arts Queensland and $13,200 from Council under the State Government’s 60/40 RADF funding arrangements.
However, Council also planned at that time to set aside some funds towards the employment of an Arts Officer in the Wide Bay region.
