Creative programs that transform lives
Creativity Australia acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which we are based, the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) peoples of the Kulin Nation, and the traditional owners of the lands on which our choirs sing. We pay our respects to Elders past and present and to all First Nations people throughout Australia.

With One Voice Seed Funding Round 19 OPEN NOW!January 18, 2022
With One Voice community choir Seed-funding grants of up to $10,000 available NOW!
Creativity Australia is building a happier, healthier, more inclusive nation with our life-changing With One Voice (WOV) program. There are currently 32 WOV community choirs across Australia that counter the increasing incidence of loneliness in our communities and bridge the gap between people experiencing disadvantage and those more fortunate through the neuroscientific benefits of group singing. We build supportive networks that help people connect to brighter futures. Together, we can change the world… one voice at a time.
As we continue to work towards our Covid-Normal we have awarded 4 grants of up to $10,000 in 2021 through our With One Voice Local Franchise Start-up fund. The first round for 2022 is now open with applications closing 5pm, Thursday, 31 March 2022.
Local community groups, social businesses and not-for-profits wanting to promote social inclusion and tackle loneliness, isolation, depression and disadvantage in their community are invited to apply. Additionally, each successful application joins a 12-month intensive mentoring program that ensures success. We’re on the look-out for more community organisations who are movers and shakers in their communities; aspiring to produce meaningful change and create a more fair and caring society; and are passionate about community wellbeing and the power of the arts – especially singing. If this is you, click here for more information and to start your application today.

WOV AUS, WE ALL SING TOGETHER: END OF YEAR AUDIO RECORDING PROJECT
A Mass Singalong audio recording of We All Sing Together, written and produced by Cath Mundy and Jay Turner, conductors of With One Voice Brisbane 🙂
This exciting project is a celebration of our WOV community joining back together in person, getting through the last 2 pandemic years and nicely tying off the year and online program that has kept us all going throughout this challenging time. It leads perfectly on from the online program and Mass Zoom sessions of previous months and will, in one big go, bring together the WOV community online once again, culminating in a wonderful mass audio recording of Cath and Jay’s fantastic original song. Something for the ages!
WOV HQ and all involved are very pleased to share with you the final recording and video available to view here! https://youtu.be/bvQ2nFOwcqo
Thank you to everyone, Cath and Jay and your wonderful song, Nicki and Craig for their video editing expertise and everyone! who submitted an audio recording or who joined us for the video 🙂
It really is an amazing celebration of the years that have been and our WOV community sticking together.
AND REMEMBER – ‘Your voice has a place in the choir, your voice has a place in the world.’
