Sydney Science Festival 2019

Expressions of interest for Sydney Science Festival will open in a few weeks’ time so organisations wishing to participate should start planning for their events, securing venues and sourcing high quality images. Produced by the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences with support from Inspiring Australia as part of National Science Week, the Festival is a great way to tell the public about your research achievements and to connect experts working across the STEM disciplines with a wide range of community members.

Now in its fifth year, Sydney Science Festival welcomes participation from event producers across the Greater Sydney Region willing to run an event from 6-18 August 2019. Application will be by an online Expression of Interest process that will be assessed against the Festival criteria: relevance, quality, feasibility of program and Sydney-based.
