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.
Mayor Jenny Whitney said this is the largest amount of funding approved by Council under the long running RADF grants program.
Art Whitsunday, Latin Madness, Heartists Arts Cooperative, Whitsunday Regional Libraries, Dee Jays School of Dance, Elizabeth Long, Arts & Culture in the Tropics, Jennifer Wood, and several other artists and organisations all had their grants approved.
The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between Whitsunday Regional Council and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland to support local arts and culture. The successful and long-running RADF program gives communities the flexibility to shape their own arts and cultural priorities.
