Big ideas will be debated and big questions will be asked on the streets of Brisbane for World Science Festival next year.

From March 9-13, Brisbane will host a week-long celebration and exploration of science, joining New York as the only other venue in the world to hold this annual event, which began in 2008.

The festival will be held at Queensland Museum, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, GoMA, the State Library of Queensland, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and the South Bank cultural precinct.

Science hubs will also be set up all around the city for people to interact, debate, listen and watch as some of the biggest thinkers in science share their latest discoveries.

Queensland Museum CEO Suzanne Miller said the World Science Festival will bring science out into the public sphere, giving everyone the chance to participate in the big questions and ideas of our time.

“The festival supports some of the Queensland Museum’s key aims, which is all about science, technology, engineering, maths and art entanglement for as many people as possible in as many ways possible right throughout their lives,” Professor Suzanne Miller said.
