World Science Festival Brisbane 2023 transformed Brisbane into a STEM wonderland, with five mind-blowing days of live shows, demonstrations, talks and workshops.

Thousands of science, technology, engineering, maths and arts enthusiasts joined in to celebrate the biggest questions in science with some of the world’s greatest minds. Each year the World Science Festival Brisbane paints the town red and takes science out of the laboratory and into the streets, parks, museums, galleries and performing arts venues of Brisbane and regional Queensland.

Queensland Museum Network holds exclusive licence to host the festival in the Asia Pacific – the only global extension of this initiative, attracting over 830,000 attendances since launching in 2016. World Science Festival Brisbane reinforces Queensland Museum’s position as a leader in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education and engagement.

The festival provides Queensland Museum Network an opportunity to engage audiences outside the traditional education sphere, and promote a whole of life “entanglement” with STEM – delivering on our mission of creating authentic and compelling experiences and stories that inspire, enrich and empower. The festival is delivered to regional Queensland throughout the calendar year under the banner of World Science Festival Queensland.

Despite recent challenges in delivering events, Queensland Museum Network in conjunction with the Queensland Government, our valued partners and stakeholders, industry experts and the wider STEM community is committed to ensuring World Science Festival Brisbane and Queensland, is delivered to the highest standard and engages the widest audience possible.

Check out all the highlights from the festival in their wrap video, and keep your eyes on their social media channels for more festival memories and programming treats. The festival is now on the road to five regional Queensland locations: Toowoomba, Chinchilla, Townsville, Gladstone, and Ipswich.
