Interact with Brisbane like never before – Curiocity invites you to explore, create and play
Curiosity is an underrated quality – those with wandering minds are always open to the endless possibilities in the world around us. Questioning and exploring your environment can often lead to a change in perspective – and where’s the fun in always seeing things the same way? If you’re the sort of person who loves to challenge your mind and explore new outlooks, we have some news that will ignite your interest. Taking over the city from South Bank to New Farm across March 15 to April 9, Curiocity is an all-in sensory experience that will make you see Brisbane in a whole new light. What are you waiting for? Open your mind and dive in …
The actual Curiocity program is made up of three major parts – World Science Festival, QODE and Curiocities. For those unfamiliar, World Science Festival is a bumper annual event that is returning for its fourth year to make science accessible to all. Through a range of activations, exhibitions and cool-as-hell pop-up events, the festival picks up on the more exciting aspects of the field – so it’s not just a bunch of serious-looking folk in lab coats giving lectures. QODE is a brand-new global tech and innovation event making its debut under the Curiocity umbrella, bringing 15 international speakers, 70 exhibitors and more than 50 start-ups to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre for two days of (productive) madness.
So let’s break down the actual Curiocities part of Curiocity – it’s an eye-popping selection of more than ten interactive installations stationed along the Brisbane River, stretching from South Bank’s Cultural Precinct to Brisbane Powerhouse. These pieces will operate day and night for the 20-day duration of the program, showcasing both our urban and open environments. A highlight includes Wave Opus IV, a large-scale self-playing instrument made by artist Ross Manning. Works like this are designed to wow, with each installation carefully curated to appeal to our city’s self-prescribed explorers, inventors and creators.
