Australia
In this urban life we live, concrete and steel dominate the colour palette of our environs – draining our individuality and crushing our creativity. The city pushes us down, but we push back! Basketball is our vehicle, and the playground our canvas for self-expression. It affords us a colour palette spanning the entire spectrum. All colours are valid, and so too are the people who paint and play with us. All are welcome as they are, and not judged for falling short of how the world would have us be. We embrace all who share our values of equality and creativity, and cultivate relationships through shared experiences on the basketball court and beyond. The court is our playground, classroom and sanctuary. We are free to create, learn, share and play, and paint the world in hues rarely seen in our everyday experience.
