LOCAL artists have an opportunity to learn how they can get their hands on Council funding at an information session next week.

The 2020 round of the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is now OPEN and Council is calling on potential applicants to put their projects forward.

A public information session for potential applicants will be held at the Council building at 11am in Mossman on Wednesday, February 12.

Douglas Shire Mayor Julia Leu said Council’s RADF program promoted arts, culture and heritage as key community development drivers.

“RADF supports diversity and inclusivity in Douglas Shire while promoting the creativity in our arts community,” she said.

“We have seen some really powerful projects receive funding and flourish such as the successful Call of the Running Tide festival held in Port Douglas last year.

“This is another really exciting opportunity for local artists to get that financial kick start to turn their creative visions into a reality.”

Previous projects recently supported by the RADF include public artworks, creative workshops, career development for artists, research and development of literary works.
