We need your help to raise $50,000 to transform the accessibility of the Baddest Bowls Club in Brisbane.

Since getting the keys to the old East Brisbane Bowls Club at the end of 2016, Backbone has gone through a lot of transformation; transforming as an organisation, and transforming the opportunities available for young artists in Brisbane. Now it’s time to transform the space.

We believe that everyone needs a place to belong, play and create. For a space that says yes to new ideas - and we know that we can't be that place until changes are made to this little place we call home.

We need your help to open this world up to everyone.
