The World Science Festival Brisbane: The history
The World Science Festival started in New York in 2008 and is an annual event which aims to take science out of the lab and onto the streets, parks, museums and galleries in New York. Previously the Festival has included gripping debates, original theatrical works, interactive explorations, musical performances, intimate salons, and major outdoor experiences.
Back for a third year, The World Science Festival Brisbane is a world-class event no different to those previously held in New York as proven in Brisbane in 2016 with big-name scientists, speakers and performers from Brisbane and the Asia Pacific Region lined up to wow Brisbane and make science accessible to everyone.
Festival venues across Brisbane
The World Science Festival Brisbane will inform the public about the wonder of science across a range of topics such as climate change, space exploration, robotics and dark matter. Presented by the Queensland Museum and supported by Tourism and Events Queensland and Brisbane Marketing, the Festival will be packed full of free and ticketed events for both adults and Brisbane Kids in iconic Brisbane venues such as the Queensland Museum, South Bank Parklands, QPAC, QAGOMA, QUT and Griffith University and the incredible Ipswich Rail Museum.
