DUE TO THE CORONA-VIRUS SITUATION – APPLICATIONS WILL NOW BE CONSIDERED UP TO MAY 31.
We will be reviewing applications from now, so the earlier you apply the more chance you have of being an awardee!
Applications for the With One Voice grants are NOW OPEN. We encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible.
If you have a passion for bringing people of all walks of life together, for nurturing community spirit and connection, 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 diverse people in your community. It’s about building bridges between those who are experiencing disadvantage and those who are more fortunate, and creating opportunities for people of diverse backgrounds and situations to learn from one another and help each other.
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
