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.
