8-10 November, 2019 State Theatre Centre of Western Australia


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 inaugural Festival took place at the State Theatre Centre from 8 to 10 November, bringing 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 is presented by Writing WA in association with Writing NSW.


Quantum Words Perth was made possible thanks to the support of the State Government through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation, Lotterywest, The City of Perth, State Theatre Centre, Boffins Books, Alex Hotel, the Science Teachers Association of Western Australia and Peel Bright Minds.
