LOCAL arts and cultural groups and individuals are invited to submit applications for the upcoming funding round of the Gladstone Region Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF).

The RADF is a Queensland Government initiative through Arts Queensland, administered by the Gladstone Regional Council, to assist innovative arts and cultural projects within the region.

Each year the council lodges an official bid for Arts Queensland funding and this money, together with a council allocation, is used to fund projects throughout the community.

The next round closes at 4pm, Monday, March 31, for short-term projects that are expected to commence after May 1.

Some of the projects that have received funding recently include Paul Suska and Lenore Cannon's Professional Mastering of Original Music, Natisha Strudwick's Conspire Isis Summer Project, the Queensland Music Festival's Gladstone Celebration 2013, visual arts workshops and light installation for the Boomtown project, as well as the Boyne Valley Community Discovery Centre's Ubobo Heritage Trail booklet.

Application forms and guidelines are available at offices, venues and libraries of the Gladstone Regional Council, as well as online at
