Brisbane, Australia

 

 

 

Details

 

Queensland commands the world stage to celebrate the intersection of science and art for the World Science Festival Brisbane. Through conversation and performance by some of the greatest thought leaders in the world, the festival will showcase scientists and performers from around Asia Pacific and host the brightest and best from previous events in New York. Expect a program in which astronauts share their tips for going to the bathroom in space, kids play with computer microscopes, and food trucks compete for road space with robots.

 

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. 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 has been held twice, in 2016 and 2017, with amazing results including:

  • 300,000+ attendances.
  • Exclusive participation from luminaries in science and art including Emmy award winning actor Alan Alda, World Science Festival co-founder Brian Greene, Laureate Fellow Brian Schmidt, National Science Foundation director France Córdova, UN water guru András Szöllösi-Nagy and NASA astronaut Andrew Thomas.
  • Queensland premieres of Brian Greene’s Light Falls: Space, Time and an Obsession of Einstein, Alan Alda’s Dear Albert, Nick Payne’s Constellations and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in A Live Presentation of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
