Regional Arts Development Fund

If you're a local artist, creative business or organisation, grants are available to bring your big ideas to life through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF). Projects supported through RADF are bold, collaborative and fuel the cultural charge that’s happening on the Gold Coast.

In 2018-19, RADF is comprised of four programs - GERMINATE, ACTIVATE, ACTIVATE MUSIC and INITIATE. It is recommended that all applicants make contact with the City's RADF Liaison Officer to discuss their application prior to submission.


Expressions of Interest are open now for Gold Coast individuals with relevant experience and interest in arts and culture including arts practitioners, cultural workers, members of cultural groups and local organisations or associations to join the Regional Arts Development Fund Committee.
