APPLY FOR A $10K GRANT TO START YOUR CHOIR
Creativity Australia is offering a limited number of communities seed funding to start their own With One Voice program. It is the same application process (see link above), but with one additional question. Applications close at 5pm (Victorian time) on Wednesday 23 November 2016
START YOUR OWN CHOIR
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.
A 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 make it easier for communities to start their own choir, Creativity Australia is offering a limited number of seed funding grants.
APPLY TO ESTABLISH YOUR OWN CHOIR
Creativity Australia have created a series of How To Guides, videos and resources to assist any local community establish a With One Voice choir, enabling you to change lives and build healthier, happier, more inclusive and stronger communities.
By establishing a local community choir under the auspices of Creativity Australia (as a registered charity) you hold a licence that enables the choir to raise funds to support projects and initiatives at a local level.
If you would like to establish a choir in your local community, submit an Expression of Interest outlining who you are, your community and the need. The first round is now open and entries close 5pm (Victorian time) on 23 November 2016. We will hold subsequent rounds in 2017.
