Noosa Council has approved $25,000 in Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Grants to support seven creative projects in the Shire in 2019.

Projects successful in grant funding include an exhibition and series of masterclasses run by artist Meaghan Shelton at the Butter Factory Arts Centre, and Angie Dunbaven’s project STORYPLACE – Noosa Everglades which will record and tell the stories of the location by elders, poets, musicians, actors and other community keepers of knowledge.

Councillor and RADF chair, Jess Glasgow, said Council was pleased to be able to support a wide range of quality creative outcomes.

“Since 2014 the RADF program has provided more than $192,000 to assist more than 53 creative projects in Noosa,” Cr Glasgow said

“In this latest round of grants, projects from puppetry mentorship to performances, workshops and art exhibitions have been supported,” he said.

“Projects like these satisfy the RADF criteria by employing arts professionals, involving the community and providing skills and opportunities to grow Noosa’s arts sector.”

The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Noosa Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland. The State matches Council’s contribution dollar-for-dollar.

The next round of RADF Grants will open late February 2019 and projects successful in this round will be delivered over the 2019-20 financial year.
