Apply for a $10k grant to start a choir

Creativity Australia is offering grants of up to $10,000 to people or groups who are wanting to start a With One Voice choir in their community.

DUE TO THE COVID-19 SITUATION – APPLICATIONS WILL NOW BE CONSIDERED ON AN ON-GOING BASIS. 
We encourage you to submit your application ASAP – SEE BELOW.

 

If you have a passion for bringing people together, for nurturing community  connection, for celebrating diversity, for being inclusive, for singing and for changing the world one voice at a time, then this could be the opportunity you have been waiting for!

The With One Voice movement is about strengthening communities and inspiring individuals to find their voice.  The movement is more than just singing with your local community choir. It’s an opportunity to create real connections between the people in your community. It’s about building bridges between those who are experiencing disadvantage and those more fortunate, and creating opportunities for people of diverse backgrounds and situations to learn from one another and help each other.

How to Apply

Due to the Covid-19 situation interested parties are asked to complete a short Expression of Interest form (see below) and submit  as a first step towards consideration.

We look forward to partnering with as many of you as possible to change your community, and the world, through the power of singing. 

A recent testimonial from a grant awardee:Receiving a ‘With One Voice’ grant has given Arrabri Community House an amazing opportunity to engage with such a diverse range of people in our community. Our numbers continue to grow and we get to meet the most amazing people. Introducing a choir has been a breath of fresh air for our community house, being able to engage with community members that may not have otherwise used our organisation. The choir is not just about singing together and having fun. We have watched members make new friends, gain confidence, come out of their comfort zones and embrace all that being part of this wonderful choir entails. All of life’s worries are left at the door, a wonderful escape from the stresses of life as the therapy of song works its magic.Kate Tasic, Arrabri Community House – Bayswater With One Voice Choir
