Curiocity Brisbane returns to ignite imagination in 2022
One of the key topics of discussion during Curiocity Brisbane’s 2021 Curious Conversations series was the critical intersection of science and art. In Shaping the STEAM Conversation, Benjamin Law sat down with Dr David Morton, Creative Director of Dead Puppet Society and Professor Peter Corke, Central Director of Australian Centre for Robotic Vision to discuss what happens when Art and STEM collide.
In a true integration of science and art, Curiocity Brisbane 2022 was to be delivered as a key pillar of World Science Festival Brisbane. The much anticipated celebration was rescheduled after flooding events impacted its planned delivery in March this year.
Proudly presented by Queensland Museum Network’s World Science Festival Brisbane, Curiocity Brisbane returns from 24 June to 10 July 2022 to transform Brisbane into an urban oasis of science and art.
Curiocity Brisbane will energise the cultural heart of Brisbane city with a world of discovery over 17 days of immersive science, art and technology, inspiring curious minds of all ages during the Queensland winter school holidays.
Award winning artists, scientists, engineers, designers, students and storytellers have created 20 physical and digital installations, known as Curiocity Artworks, that will challenge and delight visitors of all ages.
From giant bird nests, Antarctic icebergs, shapeshifting wildlife, the courtship rituals of an Australian spider, a robot’s stream of consciousness plus many more, the artworks will bring scientific concepts to life.
Spread across South Bank and South Brisbane’s Cultural Precinct along a free, 5km walking trail, visitors will have the chance to get outdoors and explore this multi-sensory experience that
encourages you to think, feel, listen, and question. Curiocity Brisbane artworks will also be brought to life through a series of workshops and talks with the artists.
