South Burnett Regional Council will fund four arts projects from the latest round of its Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) grant program.

At its June monthly meeting Councillors agreed to follow the recommendations of its RADF Advisory Committee, which supported four of the seven grant applications received in the latest  round.

Councillors agreed to fund:

  • South Burnett CTC – $3000 to develop a mural for the skate park in Somerset Street, Kingaroy
  • Noosa Film Academy – $3000 to run a screen production workshop teaching young people how to act on-screen and how to produce films and/or video for screening
  • Kingaroy State School P&C – $2909 to run a textiles workshop for primary school-aged children, and
  • The Imagination Studio – $3000 to cover part of the cost of a series of creative workshops

Two other RADF grant applicants – from the Wondai Woodworkers, who want to run a resin workshop; and Mobile Jewellery, who want to run silversmith workshops – were invited to supply additional detail and resubmit their application to the next funding round.

RADF is a 50/50 partnership between the State Government’s Arts Queensland and individual councils to support the development of local arts and culture in regional Queensland.

More information about RADF and how to apply for an RADF grant can be found on the SBRC’s website

The next round of RADF grants will open for applications on August 1  and close on August 31.
