Creativity Australia is offering $10,000 grants and a 12-month intensive mentoring program to community groups, not-for-profit organisations and businesses to help them establish a With One Voice choir to help tackle loneliness and isolation. The With One Voice movement is about strengthening communities and inspiring individuals to find their voice.
It aims to empower individuals and create supportive communities that are better placed to solve society’s big challenges including cross-cultural integration, unemployment, mental illness, productivity, skills shortages, loneliness and isolation, family fragmentation, homelessness and more.
A With One Voice program is more than just singing with a local community choir. It is an opportunity to create real connections between the diverse people in the community. It is about reaching out to those who are experiencing disadvantage and encouraging the socially advantaged in our community to engage with, learn from and help these people.
