Curiocity Brisbane is returning in 2021 to celebrate 17 days of science, art and tech.

Let your imagination roam free when Curiocity Brisbane returns for a 17-day celebration of science, art, and technology, including World Science Festival Brisbane, GOMA’s The Motorcycle Up Late, and Curiocities from around the world. The flagship creative platform will also debut exciting new initiatives including a Queensland Schools Challenge and a series of Curious Conversations about our future and the role of science, art and technology, hosted by Master of Curious Conversations Benjamin Law.

The expansion of Curiocity Brisbane’s 2021 program reflects Queensland’s place as a global hub for science, technology, innovation, and the arts. Presented by the Queensland Government, through Tourism and Events Queensland and the Department of Tourism Industry Development and Innovation, and Brisbane City Council, through Brisbane Economic Development Agency, Curiocity Brisbane will feature a range of Curiocities sourced through a global expression of interest.

These interactive installations will feature throughout the City Botanic Gardens, South Bank, South Brisbane’s Cultural Precinct, and the Brisbane CBD, inviting visitors to explore and engage with a range of digital and physical attractions drawn from science, technology, engineering, arts and maths (STEAM).

Minister for Tourism and Innovation Stirling Hinchliffe said the return of Curiocity Brisbane in 2021 was great news for Queensland after a challenging year of pandemic. “Curiocity Brisbane and its associated events will pour more than $14 million into our economy and demonstrates the importance of world-class events to Queensland’s economic recovery,” Mr Hinchliffe said.

The inaugural Curiocity Brisbane, held in 2019, attracted more than 325,000 attendees and contributed to the local economy through increased hotel visitation and spending.
