Regional Arts Fund | Flying Arts Alliance


The Regional Arts Fund (RAF) is an Australian Government program designed to benefit regional and remote arts practitioners, arts workers, audiences and communities. The fund is provided through Regional Arts Australia and is administered in Queensland by Flying Arts Alliance.

RAF supports and promotes participation in, and access to, Australia’s arts and culture in regional and remote Australia by:

  • encouraging and supporting sustainable economic, social and cultural development in regional communities
  • developing partnerships and networks which leverage financial and/or in-kind support for specific projects and encourage ongoing collaboration
  • developing audiences and broadening community engagement with the arts
  • increasing employment and professional development opportunities for, and raising the profile of, regional and remote artists


Rockhampton Art Gallery is pleased to be a recipient of the RAF Community Grant Round 1 2020.  

With this generous funding, Rockhampton Art Gallery in preparation for the Rockhampton Museum of Art seeks to engage three artists from the Central Queensland region to produce artwork commissions. These three artwork commissions will encapsulate the artists' practice through creative place making that responds to the architecture of the newly developed Rockhampton Museum of Art building. This commissioning process will ensure artists who work in the region are at the forefront of Rockhampton Museum of Art and represented clearly during opening celebrations. The artists will be identified via EOI and will work collaboratively with Rockhampton Art Gallery to foster both conceptual and practical development.

 This project is made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, provided through Regional Arts Australia, administered in Queensland by Flying Arts Alliance.
