The Commonwealth Government has launched a $5 million Regional Arts Fund Cultural Tourism Accelerator (RAFCTA) program to develop and promote arts and cultural events for tourists across regional Australia.

The RAFCTA program will help increase tourism visitation in regional, rural and remote communities across Australia by providing financial support for art and cultural activities.

There are a number of grant categories available and all projects must be acquitted by 31 October 2022.

Regional Arts Australia is running two online information sessions for the program on Tuesday 23 November 7.00pm (AEDT) and Thursday 25 November 1.30pm (AEDT).

Applicants will apply online via SmartyGrants through the Regional Program Administrator (RPA) in your state or territory.
