Start your own choir

The With One Voice movement is about strengthening communities and inspiring individuals to find their voice. We believe empowered individuals and supportive communities are better placed to solve society’s big challenges including cross-cultural integration, unemployment, mental illness, productivity, skills shortages, loneliness and isolation, family fragmentation, homelessness and more.

With One Voice program is more than just singing with your local community choir. It is an opportunity to create real connections between the diverse people in your community. It is about reaching out to those who are experiencing disadvantage and encouraging the socially advantaged in our community to engage with, learn from and help these people.

To make it easier for communities to start their own choir, Creativity Australia is offering a limited number of seed funding grants. The next round of applications will open on 17th September and close on the 4th November 2017.

Watch the short videos below to learn more and download the information guidelines  for starting a With One Voice program.

The best applicants are those that demonstrate a clear understanding of the With One Voice model, have already socialised the idea of starting a program in their community and have a small group of interested people who will support the program.
