The inaugural 2016 Sunshine Coast International Readers Writers Festival


‘The inaugural 2016 Sunshine Coast International Readers Writers Festival celebrates our Sunshine Coast region’s rich Aboriginal heritage and our acclaimed surfing culture layered over our rich literary (and musical) talent. The festival will bring together Australian and international writers (including journalists, photographers, poets, performers, and musicians) on a world stage – creating a space for conversation and connection across cultural and geographic divides.’

I love it not when technology won’t comply.   So 2nd post.  It is through the generosity of the Sunshine Coast Readers and Writers International Festival – the inaugural event to be held this year, that I am going to the Festival in Ubud.  The Sunshine Coast Regional Arts and Development Fund  has also made this possible

The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Sunshine Coast Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.

RADF funds are aimed at the development of emerging and professional artists and creative arts workers.

The RADF program is open year-round. You must contact the RADF Liaison Officer to apply. Contact council’s grants team on (07) 5420 8616 and ask for the RADF Liaison Officer. The RADF program is subject to annual budget allocations.Slide6
