Creativity Australia Grants for Starting a With One Voice Choir

29 March 2019 5:00 pm Australia/Hobart

    To celebrate its 10-year anniversary, Creativity Australia is offering grants of up to $10,000 to people or groups who are wanting to start their own With One Voice choir.

    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!

    Click here for our guidelines and the online application form.

    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.

    We are on the search for people/organisations who are:

    • Community movers and shakers;
    • Passionate about community wellbeing and the arts; and
    • Want to create meaningful change and a more inclusive and just society.

    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.

    The closing date for round 9 applications is 5:00pm, Friday 29 March 2019.
