The Regional Arts Fund was established to give all Australians in regional and remote areas better access to opportunities to practice and experience the arts. The Regional Arts Fund also aims to increase opportunities for isolated Indigenous and/or smaller regional communities.
The Regional Arts Fund supports the arts in regional, rural and remote Australia and is administered in Victoria by Regional Arts Victoria.
