People interested in culture, heritage and the arts in Caloundra City are encouraged to attend an upcoming information session on Regional Arts Development Fund grants.
Caloundra City Mayor Don Aldous said applications are now open for the RADF grants program, which provides funds for one-off, short term projects offering professional arts, cultural and heritage opportunities.
"The RADF program, coordinated by Council in partnership with the Queensland Government, makes a very valuable contribution to arts, heritage and culture in the local community," Cr Aldous said.
Cr Danny O'Kearney, the Caloundra City RADF Community Committee Chair, said the information session is an excellent opportunity for people to find out what funding might be available to support their projects.
"The RADF program, offered in partnership with Arts Queensland, offers community members a chance to participate in local arts and cultural projects,'' Cr O'Kearney said.
"It promotes the professional development and employment through projects which provide creative opportunities.''
The RADF Information Session will be held on Thursday 8 March, from 5.30 to 6.30pm at the Caloundra Regional Art Gallery. Please reserve your place by phoning 5420 8299.
Applications for grants and nominations for the committee must be received by 4.30pm, Friday March 30.
