World Science Festival Brisbane says
"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing." – Albert Einstein

The inaugural World Science Festival Brisbane (9-13 March 2016) will take science out of the laboratory and into the streets, parks, museums, galleries and performing arts venues of Brisbane.

Highlights from the jam-packed program include:

DEAR ALBERT: a play by Alan Alda, based on Einstein's Love Letters.

LIGHT FALLS: Leading physicist Brian Greene explores Einstein's journey in a performance featuring award-winning special effects worthy of Einstein's revolutionary ideas.

STREET SCIENCE!: a free two-day event running during the festival (Saturday 12 March and Sunday 13 March), bringing science to the streets of Brisbane. Visit our Street Science! Facebook event for details:

The festival will bring some of the world’s greatest thought leaders to Queensland, showcase local scientists and performers from around the Asia Pacific region, and host the brightest and the best from previous events in New York.

At the World Science Festival Brisbane, the biggest stars of science will present the beauty, complexity, and importance of science through diverse, multidisciplinary programming. The inaugural World Science Festival Brisbane is presented by the Queensland Museum with generous support from our partners.
