Creativity Australia believes it offers an arts-health social inclusion program unique from any other. Through the With One Voice program, barriers of age, race, language, religion, disability and disadvantage are removed to make everyone welcome. Why singing? Because neuroscience proves singing connects neural pathways in the brain differently, releasing endorphins, making people healthier, happier, smarter and more creative. Using singing as the vehicle for community inclusion is the centrepiece of why our program works. Music is a powerful social magnet and acts as a super “social glue” that binds people together. The more we use music to bring us together—literally and figuratively—the more potential for increased empathy, social connection, and cooperation. With One Voice Ashburton is a choir growing in popularity and membership. We have a diverse range of members from every corner of the globe who love to come together and sing their hearts out each week.
