Common Thread is a non-audition choir that sings folk music reflecting the languages and cultures of Toronto. Common Thread is built on the idea that social justice and community are built through music. In partnership with West Neighbourhood House, Common Thread runs a children’s non-audition children’s choir, that builds a sense of belonging, respect for diversity, and positive social change from a youth perspective.
Charlie Andrews is an artist and advocate for equality, dedicated to changing how leaders think about diversity and inclusion. Common Thread was awarded this grant to support Charlie’s enrollment in the Masters of Business Administration program at Ivey School of Business to enhance her strategic planning and leadership skills.
