Creativity Australia – With One Voice Community Choir Seed Grants


This program seeks to support communities from across Australia in creating a With One Voice community choir and be part of the solution to building stronger communities and reducing loneliness, isolation and disadvantage in their community. The With One Voice movement is about strengthening communities and inspiring individuals to find their voice. It is an opportunity to create real connections between the diverse people in the community.

Grants of up to $10,000 are available which will be paid in four instalments of $2,500 after choirs have met four establishment milestones (i.e. 1st rehearsal, launch).

In addition (and separate to the initial $10,000 seed grant) individual communities may also apply for an allowance of up to $2,500 to support their conductor in their development.
