World Science Festival (Brisbane)
March 25 - March 29
Hailed by The New York Times as ‘a new cultural institution’, the World Science Festival – founded by renowned Physicist Professor Brian Greene and Emmy award-winning journalist Tracy Day – has been held annually in New York for more than a decade.
World Science Festival explores and celebrates the entanglement of science and art through a curated program of thought-provoking conversations, inspiring theatrical and cinematic experiences, interactive workshops and engaging demonstrations.
Queensland Museum Network has secured the exclusive licence to host World Science Festival in the Asia Pacific from 2016-21.
The only global extension of this hugely popular initiative, World Science Festival Brisbane reinforces Queensland Museum’s position as a leader in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and engagement.
World Science Festival Brisbane is a key pillar event of Curiocity, a major new annual event for Brisbane in March and April, where the CBD, Southbank Cultural Precinct and the creative hub around the Brisbane Powerhouse in New Farm will come to life with a range of curious encounters with Science, the Arts, and Technology.
