In 2017, Backbone celebrates its 30th birthday with a month-long celebration of music, theatre, visual and performance art at their new home – the East Brisbane Bowls Club.
Backbone FUTURE30 Festival will look at the past, present and future of the youth arts organisation. The festival will feature work from Backbone alumni, the current Performance Ensemble as well as young and emerging artists.
"It’s hugely exciting to be welcoming so many people from the Brisbane arts community into our new home all to celebrate the incredible achievement of reaching our 30th birthday. As a youth arts organisation we are always looking forward, and looking at what the next 30 years might have in store for us as artists,” Artistic Director and Backbone Chief Executive Officer Katherine Quigley says.
“Backbone, like many other arts organisations has seen its fair share of challenges, but we have overcome them to be here bigger, brighter and louder than ever and the FUTURE30 Festival is testament to that.”
