Regional Arts Fund
The Regional Arts Fund (RAF) is part of the Australian Government’s Arts and Cultural Development Program. The aim of the fund is to promote participation in, and access to, Australia’s arts and culture through developing and supporting cultural expression. Grants of up to $30,000 are available for individuals and registered organisations in regional communities. More information about the Regional Arts Fund can be found here: https://www.rav.net.au/funding-opportunities/regional-arts-fund/
There are two grant streams available:
· Project Grants, for arts projects, professional development for artists and arts workers, and community capacity building projects
· Quick Response Grants, for small unplanned arts activities, professional development for artists and arts workers, and community capacity building activities
Regional Arts Victoria (RAV) administers the Regional Arts Fund in Victoria, and regionally based RAV staff are available to offer advice on projects and applications. Nikki Ralston is the RAF adviser for all artists and groups located in Moira Shire.
