Creativity Australia is building a happier, healthier, more inclusive nation, through the neuro-scientific benefits of community singing and the With One Voice Choirs.
To make it easier for communities to start their own choir, Creativity Australia is offering a limited number of start-up funding grants of up to $10,000.
Successful applicants will receive the start-up grant and join a 12-month intensive mentoring programme to guide them through the process of building their own ‘With One Voice Social Franchise’ choir.
How the With One Voice Social Franchise program works
With One Voice Social Franchise programs are set up and ran by local volunteers using the resources and materials provided by Creativity Australia. 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. The choir is set up as an unincorporated association under the umbrella of Creativity Australia. This includes an independent bank account which is jointly managed by the local choir volunteers and Creativity Australia.
Applications close: 31st August 2018
