Following a two-year absence, World Science Festival Brisbane (WSFB) has returned in situ under the auspices of the Queensland Museum Network (QMN). Many of the world’s leading scientists in areas as diverse as physics, artificial intelligence, space exploration, palaeontology, the natural world and climate issues, will come together at Southbank to share knowledge and expertise while imparting hard facts about our future world.
With more than 130 events and activities packed into six days from 22-26 March, the program offers an expansive range of conversations and discussions. But the Festival has also evolved significantly since it started in 2016 with its main premise being to take hard science and make it accessible to all. Thus, the QMN is utilising the talents of artists to communicate often-difficult concepts to a wider public in some diverse and fun programming.
