Regional Arts Development Fund

The purpose of the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) program is to support professional and emerging professional artists and arts workers to practise their art, for and with communities, resulting in mutual development of the professional artists/arts workers and communities in Logan.

Arts professionals from all art forms including dance, music, design, museum and cultural heritage, new media, visual arts, writing and theatre are encouraged to apply.

RADF is not intended to be used as the main income source for any professional artist or arts worker or for recurrent funding of projects or organisations.

RADF provides opportunities for artists and arts practitioners based in Logan to develop their careers through project based funding in the categories of:
