Quantum Words Perth Festival

8 - 10 November 2019 State Theatre Centre of WA, Studio Underground

Presented by Writing WA in association with Writing NSW.

Quantum Words Perth is Western Australia's first writers festival dedicated specifically to writing about science, creativity and the spaces in which they intersect.

The Festival will bring together outstanding thinkers, scientists and creators from across Australia and overseas to engage in conversations about the ways in which we come to understand ourselves, our world, and the expansive universe we live within.

Quantum Words Perth will delve into everything from climate change to orangutan conservation, water safety, “alternative facts”, Indigenous astronomy and more.
We hope you will join with us in starting some new conversations.
