Fun Palace says
What happens when an ecologist makes you role play a scrub turkey, a teddy bear helps you solve engineering problems, and groceries are turned into chemistry explosions? You’ll be participating in State Library’s Fun Palace.

On Saturday 1 October, State Library of Queensland will open its doors from 10:30am-3:30pm for people of all ages to try their hand at lots of free creative workshops. The State Library will be transformed into a wonderland of creativity as art and science collide, and people from across Queensland take the opportunity to fulfil the Fun Palace motto, everyone an artist, everyone a scientist, for themselves.

State Library is one of over 50 locations across Queensland, Australia, and all around the world taking part in Fun Palaces 2016, a free, global celebration of community, bringing people together with arts and sciences, taking place on the first weekend in October each year. In 2015, 90,000 people participated globally – 1300 of them at the State Library’s own home on Brisbane’s South Bank.

State Library teams up with artists, actors, academics, scholars, scientists, performers and even librarians to push your limits and explore new horizons in knowledge and culture. Participants can take part in experiments and games, draw, write, dance, and explore the scientific mysteries of our weird and wonderful world. Participants will be blown away by art and science combined in an exciting performance by special guests Street Science.

We invite you to join in the fun as State Library offers multiple activities, workshops, demonstrations and displays to satisfy even the most curious of minds.

Fun Palace is perfect for the young and the young at heart, and it is entirely free and open to the whole community.

Event program will be updated shortly.
