Now that we’re well and truly back into the daily grind, we all need something to look forward to to get us through the 9-to-5.

Coming up this March is said relief: the Curiocity Brisbane festival.

By creators and artists, for wide-eyed children and adults needing a break, it showcases over 60 installations – Curiocities – each combining art, science, and technology; hosted around the City, Botanic Gardens, South Brisbane, and South Bank.

“Almost half (of the installations) are world and national premieres, making Brisbane the first place you can experience them,” said Stirling Hinchliffe, Queensland’s Tourism Minister.

“Curiocity Brisbane is expected to bring around 325,000 curious visitors into Brisbane and contribute $14 million to the local economy.”

It sounds like the perfect excuse to get back out into our city to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes (while social distancing, of course).

17 of the installations are from local artists too, so it truly is a Brisbane experience.

In addition to the art installations, there’s also a Curious Conversations series hosted by author and journalist Benjamin Law.

Plus, a Schools Challenge with competitors from across the state.

You can catch all the action from the 12 – 28th of March.
