Creativity Australia is offering seed funding grants of up to $10,000 to people or groups who are wanting to start a With One Voice choir in their community. The closing date for all applications in Round 15 is 5.00pm, Friday 26th February.
If you have a passion for bringing people together, for nurturing community connection, for celebrating diversity, for being inclusive, 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 people in your community. It’s about building bridges between those who are experiencing disadvantage and those more fortunate, and creating opportunities for people of diverse backgrounds and situations to learn from one another and help each other.
Why now? More than ever, people are feeling heightened anxiety, loneliness, and isolation. We think this is the ideal time to start planning for the future and re-igniting positive community spirit and togetherness in the wake of a difficult and worrying time.
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. We welcome applications from all across Australia.
Please see further details, and apply, on our website: creativityaustralia.org.au.
