Creativity Australia

Creativity Australia is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2008 by award-winning Australian social entrepreneur Tania de Jong AM. Creativity Australia inspires people to find their voice. The organisation uses inclusive, creative programs that result in positive social and economic outcomes for individuals, organisations and communities. reativity Australia's acclaimed With One Voice choir social inclusion and community wellbeing programs aim to recognise each unique voice. The choir programs are unique in that they deliberately build and bridge social capital. They bring together people of all ages and from all walks of life, cutting across socioeconomic, cultural, religious, generational and linguistic barriers in the pursuit of harmony. The choirs provide important opportunities to develop networks for friendship, belonging and employment. Participants develop leadership potential, build self esteem, communication and creative skills. They also learn how to work as a team. When many diverse voices come together as "one voice" on a regular basis, the outcomes are transformational. This has already led to members gaining employment through improved self esteem, contacts and skills developed through the programs.
