Logan City Council is committed to developing cultural projects that benefit both art and cultural practitioners, and the broader Logan Community. If you are a visual artist, a writer, a musician, a dancer, or a performer, this is a gateway for professional development, and networking activities. If you are interested in the arts, this page can connect you to a range of exciting cultural activities in Logan.
Logan City Council currently supports the following cultural projects:
Logan live! Music in local eateries in the City of Logan
Logan live! (1 July to 31 July 2018) will provide funding to match performing artists with venues, with the intention that both can benefit from exposure to and increase in audience attendance. Logan live! will be launched on 21 June with performances in Logan City Council libraries, Mayes Cottage and Logan Art Gallery.
Logan City Council's Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Committee proposed a strategic initiative to enhance appreciation of music in Logan. It is hoped that the initiative will continue beyond the funding support provided by RADF. Contact Council's Regional Arts Development Fund Officer if you would like to be involved on 3412 5426.

Cultural Mapping Project
In 2011 arts practitioners and cultural organisations across Logan gave their thoughts on the arts and cultural activities currently on offer across the city. This feedback helped Council shape a revised Cultural Map of Logan. Find out what the community said by downloading Logan's Cultural Map (PDF 2118 KB).

Logan Artworkers Networking Events (LANE)
Held every month, LANE gives artists from Logan and surrounding areas the opportunity to share thoughts on current projects, and discuss topics relevant to artists from broad artistic backgrounds.
Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF)
RADF provides opportunities for professional and emerging arts and cultural workers to develop their careers through project based funding. Visual artists, writer, performers, musicians, multimedia artists, and creative arts practitioners are invited to apply for RADF support for a wide variety of activities. Although preference is given to RADF applications from artists based in Logan, projects that provide benefit to the Logan community will also be considered.
RADF can provide funding assistance for individual professional development opportunities, community arts projects, projects that focus on the distinctive attributes of our area, and projects that form partnerships between artists and community organisations.
Visit the RADF page for more information.
