Curiocity is coming back again to take over Brisbane with a 17 day festival that celebrates creativity, innovation, science, technology and art.
This year it will include the World Science Festival Brisbane (24-28 March), GOMA’s The Motorcycle Up Late (19-20 March) and Curiocities from around the world. The flagship creative platform will also be hosting a Queensland Schools Challenge and a series of Curious Conversations about our future and the role of science, art and technology, hosted by Benjamin Law.
Curiocity will also feature a range of interactive installations throughout the City Botanic Gardens, South Bank, South Brisbane’s Cultural Precinct and the Brisbane CBD, inviting visitors to explore and engage with a range of digital and physical attractions drawn from science, technology, engineering, arts and maths(STEAM).
The Curiocities are spread across four precincts on a 6.5km walking trail throughout the City Botanic Gardens, South Bank, South Brisbane’s Cultural Precinct and the Brisbane CBD.
