Budding Artists Mentorship Program
In 2017, four Umbrella members were selected according to their proposed project to be mentored by a top-level industry professional and proved with art material funds to realise their project.
The project was open to Umbrella members under the age of thirty, who worked in any visual arts discipline, that had a project idea that would take them to the next level of their artistic development.
In 2020 the success of this program has led to the development of Transitions an expanded studio practice and mentorship art development program.
The Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the Townsville City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
