Voiceworks+ Timewarp Tribute 20-09-2023-157


VoiceworksPLUS is a choir and performing arts group which fosters the talents of people living with intellectual disabilities.

VoiceworksPLUS was established in 2013 as part of Vocal Ensemble Voiceworks Inc (VEV). The program teaches acting, singing and movement techniques which help to build self-confidence and develop communication skills. Performances, which include participants and supporting volunteers, are designed to challenge community perceptions of disability.

Prospective new members are interviewed and assessed but do not require previous experience. VW+ is making a major difference to participants, their support networks and the local community.

If you, or a member of your family, are interested in joining the VoiceworksPLUS choir, please call our administrator on 0468 853 025 to discuss arrangements for participation.

How you can help VoiceworksPLUS

Timewarp 4


COVID restrictions after the re-opening of the Western Australian border in early 2022 resulted in rescheduling, but VoiceworksPLUS still had three well attended public performances durinh the year: "VoiceworksPLUS has talent" in July, "Phone a Friend" in September and "Mad Christmas" in December.  2023 was probably the best year ever for performances with packed houses and rave reviews for the shows "Rainbow of Emotions", the "Timewarp" tribute to the past 10 years of performances, and a very well attended Carols in the Park.

In the words of a participant: "I go to VoiceworksPlus. I have been going for 10 years. I go every week because I love it. It helps me speak very well. I have made new friends. I have learned to use a phone so I don’t get so lonely. I like talking to people. VoiceworksPlus makes me feel safe and happy."

From a parent’s perspective: 'Wednesday afternoons are the highlight of M’s week. He loves the sense of community, building friendships and having a ripping sing. Learning and developing new skills and talents is just a bonus. The support that the Voiceworks community provides the VoiceworksPlus members is so appreciated."

Funding to enable similar programs and performances to continue in 2024 is vital. Donations will be used to cover expenses associated with rehearsals and performances, including program development; a Musical Director; an Artistic Director; other professionals; costumes; venue hire; and publicity.
