Yesterday was a great day for the With One Voice program, when key stakeholders met towards a future choir in the Boroondara area, supported by Swinburne University. At the event, Former Premier of Victoria Ted Baillieu agreed to become an Ambassador for our upcoming national Sing for Spring project, which will get communities singing from Cooktown to Cottesloe!

Creativity Australia has also secured funding from beyondblue to undertake, in partnership with Swinburne University, an evaluation project to understand how and why the With One Voice program works. It will be the first step toward a wider independent analysis, the scope of which includes other arts-health programs addressing specific social challenges such as mental health, depression, long-term and multi-generational unemployment.

In addition we are seeking partners for a specific piece of research evaluating the benefits of the With One Voice program for job seekers, in particular those within the job services and disability services network. This will be longitudinal research tracking the job-seeking intentions, behaviour and outcomes of a selection of new choir participants across multiple program locations.
