15 DECEMBER - ROTARY MUSTERS RADF SUPPORT FOR MUSIC EVENT

Beaudesert's Music Muster is among the local projects to benefit from support under the latest round of the Scenic Rim Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), with four recipients to share in almost $24,000 in funding.

The Rotary Club of Beaudesert will receive $8200 to help stage next year's free community event which will feature an array of family entertainment including music, rides, and arts and crafts.

Scenic Rim RADF Committee Chair Cr Rick Stanfield said other recipients in the current funding round included Lorraine Brown, Alinta Krauth and the Mununjali Art Group.

"Under Council's co-funding partnership with the State Government, through Arts Queensland, Scenic Rim has almost $70,000 available in 2015-16 to support projects which offer professional arts, cultural and heritage opportunities," Cr Stanfield said.

"Local artists and cultural workers can apply for RADF support under the strategic themes of Caring for Our Community, Cultural Trails, Vibrant Towns and Villages, Professional Development and Artist in Residence.

"The outcomes of the program contribute greatly to the cultural and social fabric of our Scenic Rim community."

Premier and Arts Minister Annastacia Palaszczuk said the Queensland Government was providing $2.08 million in 2015-16 for the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), a state and local government partnership with 59 local councils across Queensland.

"The $2.08 million will leverage approximately $1.8 million from local councils, and means an anticipated total of $3.9 million will be available for arts projects across the state,” the Premier said.

"RADF supports around 3000 arts, cultural and heritage projects annually, ranging from local festivals and celebrations, to training, education and employment outcomes for Queensland artists.”

"This year will see a revamped RADF program developed in consultation with local councils which opens the way for more arts at a local level with public art commissions, access to touring productions and more training opportunities on offer,” she said.
