Round 1 2017 -2018

Proposl Snapshot applications for Round 1 2017/2018 will close on 26 July 2017

The 2017-18 RADF program heralds the beginning of a more flexible and innovative approach to supporting Arts and Culture in the Scenic Rim.

A new RADF model has been developed that will be more relevant to the local community and this is set out in a new set of RADF guidelines. 

 Please note the Guidelines and application forms have been recently updated since 2016 in line with current Arts Queensland Policy 

Each Round will  now involve a two stage process:

Stage 1: Proposal Snapshot.

The first stage of each round will use the Proposal Snapshot form to provide a "summary" of your project. This 3 page application form only requires a project description, how the project address's the Key Performance Outcomes (KPO's) and a budget summary.

Stage 2: Full Application

The RADF committee and external Advisory Committees will  create a shortlist of projects based on these Snapshots. These applicants will then be invited to complete a Full Application for assessment.

Full applications will now fall under two categories:

Public Projects Full Application. Is used for those undertaking activities that have or will lead to a public outcome – e.g. exhibitions, events, engagement projects, creative developments, performances, place making projects, publications and public workshops.

Stage 2: Professional Development Full Application is used for those undertaking professional/career development activities – e.g. attendance at conferences and training workshops to develop your own skills, knowledge or career.  

Stage 3 Outcome Report

All activities that receive RADF investment (including individual career development/ arts and cultural projects and activities/ or council strategic initiatives) are required to complete this outcome report template.
