Open Doors Workshop Program

Backbone Youth Arts and Open Doors have opened registrations for young people aged between 12 – 24 who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual and/or transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) to be part of an 8 week series of FREE weekly workshops being run at the East Brisbane Bowls Club.

This is a safe space to take artistic risks. You will have the opportunity to learn and explore a range of performance and artistic skills directed by the interests of the participants, supported by Backbone facilitators and guest industry professionals. The aim of the program is to work on a collaborative piece for public showing later in the year.

The workshops will be held every Thursday from 4.30pm – 6.30pm starting on August 24
