Curiocity Brisbane


Deadline:30th November, 2021

Brisbane is gearing up for Curiocity Brisbane as part of World Science Festival Brisbane 2022.

Calling all local, national and international creators, makers, artists, engineers, architects and other creatives alike who are wanting to spark inspiration, innovation and transform the river city into an interactive play space where visitors can touch, see, hear, wonder and start conversations.

Expressions of interest are now open for large-scale, interactive physical and digital installations that reflect the intersection of art, science and technology.

Individuals, collectives, organisations, work groups and others are invited to get curious, get creative and apply with ideas that will wow visitors in 2022.

These Curiocities will be exhibited at public spaces in Brisbane from 9 – 20 March 2022, as part of Curiocity Brisbane and World Science Festival Brisbane.

In 2021 Curiocities created by artists and makers from across the state and around the globe went on display across four precincts; the City Botanic Gardens, South Bank, South Brisbane’s Cultural Precinct and the Brisbane CBD including:

  • The Party Button an interactive artwork inspired by crosswalk traffic interfaces, made up of a ‘walking’ and ‘stop’ traffic lights and a traffic light button, creating a viral sensation attracting more than 3.8 million views on TikTok.
  • The Immersive Guitar – the world’s largest acoustic guitar created by Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre.
  • Maiwar AR created by Bilbie Labs – a visual heritage and animated cultural tour of first contact Brisbane.
  • The Residents by Australian artist Craig Walsh. A high-definition projection of prehistoric creatures known to have inhabited the Brisbane River (Maiwar) millions of years ago!
  • SEADS (Space Ecologies Art and Design) – a microscopic aquatic animal with superpowers created by artists from the Philippines.
  • Now You See Me – a giant pair of binoculars offering an alternative perspective on the world in front of you, created by Anagram from the United Kingdom.

For your chance to be part of the 2022 trail of Curiocities submit your bright ideas by 30 November 2021. Applicants must be 18 years or older.
