The Regional Arts Fund has opened to taking applications for activities happening within the next year that will have lasting cultural, economic and social benefits for individuals and communities and will remain open until 15 August 2013.
The RAF recognises that many Australians live in remote parts of Australia and this is the area where the funding will go toward.
The RAF’s funding is mainly targeted at developing partnerships and cultural networks, providing artists with professional development and employment opportunities, supporting arts and community development projects that provide local communities with the opportunity to participate in cultural activities, and emphasising building capacity in disadvantaged, youth, remote and indigenous communities.
The monetary assistance available for these activities start at a minimum of $5,000 to a maximum amount of $30,000. Last year the RAF funded 22 projects around the state with a grand total of $393,040.
