Creativity Australia Calls For ‘With One Voice’ Grant Applications

Creativity Australia invites applications for up to 10 grants of up to $10,000 in 2021 through the With One Voice Community Choir Social Franchise Start-up fund.

Applications for Round 16 are open now. The closing date for applications in Round 16 is 5:00 pm, Monday 31 May, 2021.

Creativity Australia is on the look-out for more people who are:

  • Movers and shakers in their communities
  • Passionate about community wellbeing and the power of the arts – especially singing
  • Aspiring to produce meaningful change and create a more fair and caring 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. Additionally, each successful application joins a 12-month intensive mentoring program. Three new organisations awarded seed funding thus far in 2021 through With One Voice programs are in Bega, Riverina and Newcastle, NSW.

All successful Start-up Grant organisations are located in areas that are culturally and economically diverse and seek to redress balance between those that have and have-not. They provide crucial interventions for all participants and support those directly and indirectly affected by many of life’s challenges.

Most importantly, these organisations recognise how singing in a group can improve wellbeing, inspire personal growth and transform communities. Each successful applicant must present a strong social franchise offer that we believe will be successful and sustainable.

Creativity Australia is a charity founded in 2008 by award-winning social entrepreneur and soprano Tania de Jong AM. Creativity Australia’s With One Voice program operates nationally uniting people of all ages, faiths and all walks of life.
