Want to be part of Brisbane’s most exciting new event?

Curious to volunteer?

Volunteering for Curiocity puts you at the heart of the action.

What is Curiocity?

Take a break from reality and immerse yourself in Curiocity Brisbane – a brand-new series of science, art and technology experiences spanning the Brisbane River.

The inaugural Curiocity Brisbane includes the World Science Festival Brisbane 2019 (March 20-24), brand-new global technology and innovation event QODE (April 2-3) and a trail of 14+ eye-opening interactive installations called Curiocities (March 15 - April 3).

These mind-bending Curiocities are positioned along the Brisbane River from South Bank’s Cultural Precinct to Brisbane Powerhouse and operate both day and night over the 20 days.

Curiocities are one-of-a-kind installations, pop-ups and interactive spaces crafted by local and international artists, technicians and makers on display and free for everyone to explore.
