A NUMBER of local artists and community organisations will benefit from nearly $40,000 in funding after Whitsunday Regional Council yesterday approved their Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) grants.

The successful and long-running RADF program gives communities the flexibility to shape their own arts and cultural priorities.
