'Playable Brisbane' is the idea behind this year's Curiocity – the festival that celebrates creativity, innovation, science, technology and art.

Back in Brisbane after its stellar 2019 debut, the event will play host to a program of immersive, interactive and multi-sensory experiences, alongside the world-leading QODE technology and innovation festival (24 – 25 March), and globally-renowned events World Science Festival Brisbane (25 – 29 March) and the thought provoking and celebratory WOW (Women of the World) Australia 2020 (2 – 5 April), plus two special QAGOMA Water Up Late events (20 – 21 March). 

325,000 people attended last year's Curiocity Brisbane events and this year promises to be bigger and bolder.


March 20 - April 5.


A range of free interactive installations and pop-up experiences will ignite curiosity across creative hubs throughout Brisbane including Queensland Museum, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), State Library of Queensland, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), Victoria Bridge, Queen Street Mall, Reddacliff Place, New Farm Park and Captain Burke Park.

Event Highlights:

A highlight is the world premiere of Digital Domes, a pop-up at New Farm Park from 20 – 22 March. This collection of large geodesic domes will project the latest innovations in Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Artificial Intelligence (AI), gaming and screen technologies.

In conjunction with the major summer exhibition at GOMA, Water Up Late will include leading Australian music acts performing on indoor and outdoor stages, pop-up performances, playful science activations, karaoke, bars, dining and more! Tickets for Water Up Late from $34, available here.
