The Adani Show was developed by Backbone Youth Arts through the Mini Change Makers framework in 2018. This process saw three 10-12 year olds collaborate with artists under 30 working in performance, projection, animation, and social change to develop a work that spoke about environmental issues this generation will face as they grow older. This is where The Adani Show was born, mixing music, performance, video work, and even trivia to create a wholistic show.
About Backbone Youth Arts
We are a youth arts organisation based in East Brisbane, Australia. We support curious, untamed, and experimental thinkers to challenge ideas and express themselves through many creative art forms.
Backbone Youth Arts facilitates learning and risk taking, as well as the creation of new and exciting works. Our year-round programming includes workshops, performances, festivals, events, resources and training, and providing space for all of this to happen in.
Established in Brisbane over 30 years ago, Backbone has now settled into our home at the East Brisbane Bowls Club which we have transformed into a vibrant arts hub where people come to be creative, see shows, and host their own unique events.
All of these things are part of our mission: to cultivate this city and nation’s next generation of artists, creative entrepreneurs, and cultural leaders. Backbone is here for the young artist community, and because of the young artist community.
