  • 5. Concept
Development• Objective
—
to
develop

ideas
and project
proposals
to
the
implementation
stage
and
identify funding
sources
outside
of
RADF
to
implement
project proposals.• RADF
grants
will
support
individuals
and
groups
who
wish
to engage
in
professional
research
and
the
development
of
ideas and
project
proposals
to
the
implementation
stage.
No
specific artform
product
is
required,
however,
the
project
should demonstrate
how
it
will
contribute
to
future
arts
and
cultural development.• Potential
funding
sources
for
the
implementation
of
the project
do
not
need
to
be
identified
prior
to
making
the application.

identify
project
stakeholders
and
use
the
local
network • To
not
activate
groups
that
could
not
be

discuss
meaning • To
get
new

old
residents
talking
to
each
other• Realities • Only
a
few
people
brought
along
objects • We
had
to
use
collection

of
keeping
people
focused
on
topic • Venues
were
geographically
based
and
reflected
either pockets
of
long

communities,
not
a
mix • Best
