Quantum Words Perth
Festival Patron: Lyn Beazley

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

The inaugural Festival took place at the State Theatre Centre in 2019, 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.

We are excited to announce that the festival is returning in 2022 with a day of events at John Curtin Theatre in Fremantle  on the 16th of September and two days of events at the State Library of WA.

The program includes a range of events suitable for adults, schools and children.


Quantum Words Perth is presented by Writing WA in association with Writing NSW.


Quantum Words Perth 2022 is made possible thanks to the support of the State Government through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and Lotterywest; and by Federal Government through the Australia Council for the Arts.
