Apply for $10k grants to start your choir

  • Are you a community mover and shaker?
  • Are you passionate about community well-being 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 celebrate its 10th Anniversary, Creativity Australia is offering up to 10 grants of up to $10,000 to start your choir. The next round of applications is an open round. There is no closing date. However, we plan to award the 10 grants by June 30 2019, so the sooner you get your application in, the better.

Community groups are expected to gain additional funding support from their local councils, foundations and businesses in order to ensure the long-term sustainability of their local program.

To maximize our financial capacities and create viable community programs, Creativity Australia favour applications where a percentage of the funds are matched by the applicant organisation and/or local community.

This is an open round where applications will be assessed on a first-come first-served basis. 

Don’t delay! All grants will be awarded by June 30th 2019.
