This year World Science Festival Brisbane is exploring the nexus between art and science.


From the process of experimenting, trial and error to discovering something new or achieving a breakthrough – science and art have much in common, and always have.


What happens at the intersection of science and art? Is the creative mind so different from that of a scientist or researcher? Learn scientific illustration through the ages and why sustainability in design is so important.


Plus, the Cultural Precinct will see a collection of inspiring and thought provoking art installations, activations and Curiocities.
