Backbone inspires, empowers and equips young people to develop thriving creative futures.

Backbone lays foundations for a generation of arts practitioners and cultural leaders to rise up and claim their place in the creative landscape. Working with young people and emerging artists, we create events, new works, Festivals, professional development and training driven by creative risk, authenticity and artistic excellence. We develop the leadership capacities of a young generation of performers, theatre-makers and cultural producers to take forward into careers in the arts and otherwise.

Backbone is driven by openness and generosity, enriching the creative capital of young people and giving them tools to create great art that is honest and relevant.
