Creativity Australia 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.

Creativity Australia ( is building a happier, healthier, more inclusive nation through the life-changing With One Voice program. We bridge the gap between people experiencing disadvantage and those more fortunate through the neuro-scientific benefits of community singing using our innovative social franchise model. Our goal is to have 40 programs operating nationwide by the end of 2020.

In our last funding rounds, we awarded grants to community choirs in Burwood (NSW), Macedon Ranges (VIC), St Helens (TAS), Redfern (NSW), Ballarat (VIC) and Perth (WA), bringing the total number of choirs in the With One Voice family up to 23.

We would be grateful if you could help us spread the word by sharing the information with your networks and contacts via social media, your website or newsletters etc.

We have attached collateral to assist you in the promotion of this opportunity, but even sharing the link to our grants page on our website would be a huge help (

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to together creating meaningful connections and positive changes in our communities!
