Apply for $10k grants to start your choir

  • Are you a community mover and shaker?
  • Are you passionate about community wellbeing and the arts?
  • Do you want to create meaningful change and a fairer, more caring society?

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 grants up to $10k to start your choir. The next round of applications are open and will close on 16th November, 2018.
