Grow #mydurian

Help bear more fruit in the arts

Grow #mydurian

As Esplanade turned 20 in 2022, we invited everyone to celebrate with us and help us bear more fruit in the arts through our Grow #mydurian campaign.


From Oct 2022 to Jun 2023, the public was invited to virtually adopt one (or more) of our sunshades, claddings or “spikes” that have earned us our “durian” nickname. For a donation of $98 per spike, people could virtually personalise their adopted spikes with an image or message.


Close to $60,000 was raised through the campaign, with 548 spikes adopted virtually. The amount raised will support Esplanade’s continued efforts to be an arts centre for everyone.
