Brisbane gears up for World Science Festival

The program for the 2022 World Science Festival Brisbane has launched with more than 130 events to take place across March 9-13.

“The World Science Festival Brisbane’s theme in 2022 of ‘Science, People, Heart’, will investigate how science, creativity and art are helping shape a brighter, more hopeful world,” said Minister for the Arts Leeanne Enoch.

“In 2022 the bold, contemporary program of over 130 events will have almost 50 free shows and will include the City of Science, Education Programs, Conversations and the much-loved The Hatchery; Turtle Conservation Experience.”

This year Curiocity Brisbane will be delivered as a key pillar of World Science Festival Brisbane, showcasing interactive sculptural, digital, large and small-scale artworks in locations throughout the Cultural Centre, South Bank Parklands and Brisbane City.

Tourism and Innovation Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said the partnership of the World Science Festival Brisbane and Curiocity Brisbane created a unique visitor experience.

“The Palaszczuk Government is an enthusiastic supporter of these events for their strong track record of encouraging visitors to explore Queensland’s capital and our regions,” said.

“This unique festival of art and science will be welcome news for Brisbane accommodation and transport providers, cafés, restaurants and tourism operators.”
