Hailed by The New York Times as ‘a new cultural institution’, the World Science Festival (WSF) – was founded by renowned physicist Professor Brian Greene and Emmy award-winning journalist Tracy Day and has been held annually in New York for more than a decade.
Queensland Museum holds exclusive licence to host WSF in the Asia Pacific – the only global extension of this initiative. Since 2016 WSFB has attracted over 700, 000 attendances to over 400 events, with 1000+ participants from over 20 countries!
WSFB celebrates the intersection between science and the arts through a program of signature events, thought-provoking conversations, interactive workshops, films, dedicated education activities and major outdoor experiences.
