Cultural Grants

Council's Cultural Grants support initiatives via the provision of financial assistance to the local Townsville arts and culture community.

Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF)

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between state and local governments which invests in quality arts and cultural experiences across Queensland based on locally determined priorities.

RADF promotes the role and value of arts, culture and heritage as key drivers to: support diversity and inclusiveness; grow strong regions; and provide training, education and employment opportunities for Queensland artists and local communities.

RADF applications are currently closed, as council is awaiting the outcome of the Arts Queensland bid. We encourage potential applicants to view the information sheet, and begin planning their applications.

If you would like to receive a notification when the round has opened, please submit your details on our online form.
