RADF Individual Professional Development Grant

COVID-19 impacts on the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Program

All applications for the RADF 2020/21 Program will be required to complete a Risk Assessment Questionnaire ( DOCX, 0.27 MB ) as part of their submission to ensure all proposals have considered government-issued COVID-19 public health guidelines.

The Individual Professional Development Grant provides local artist with funds to attend professional development opportunities.

Grants are capped at $1,000 for opportunities within Queensland and up to $1,500 for interstate and international travel.

This grant is open all year round to the extent of available funds.

This is an Out-of-Round grant: applications can be made up to eight weeks prior to the activity start date, however complete applications must be received at least six weeks prior to the activity start date (applicants will be notified of funding decisions within two to four weeks after complete applications are received).
