With One Voice Community Choir Seed Funding
Seed Funding Overview
To make it easier for communities to start their own choir, Creativity Australia is offering a limited number of seed funding grants of $10,000. Successful applicants will receive the $10,000 seed grant and join a 12-month intensive mentoring program to guide them through the process of building their own With One Voice choir.
Success is determined by our unique “Health of Choirs” indicators that measure member engagement and participation through our personalised program App. During the first six months one of our program staff will mentor the organizing committee to interpret the indicators and use them to focus their efforts to lay a strong foundation for the choir to succeed, be socially inclusive and build community wellbeing and inspirational outcomes for participants.
In addition (and separate to the initial $10k seed grant) individual communities may also apply for an allowance of up to $2,500 to support their conductor travelling to Melbourne to participate in the conductor training workshops to be held in early 2018.
Funding is not prioritized for any particular group or type of organisation, however, there is a set of criteria that applicants must meet. Please see the information pack that can be downloaded from the Creativity Australia website for more information
The organising committees of With One Voice Choirs must represent the community and applications will be assessed based on their diversity and/or plan to achieve diversity.
