The inaugural Creative Brain Week Australia (CBWA) is ‘Thematically Connected and Locally Informed’, bringing Australian knowledge and nuance to the Dublin recipe.

In a bold and audacious move, Creative Brain Week is expanding its program to include four global Satellite events, and we are thrilled that Brisbane's bid for the honour of being one of these events was successful.
The event will bring together neuroscientists, educationalists, policymakers, artists, innovators, decision-makers, funders, and people who have lived experience in the creative brain space.

The goal of the event is to share knowledge, break down silos and celebrate how brain science and creativity collide to seed new ideas in social development, technology, entrepreneurship, wellbeing and physical, mental and brain health across the life cycle.
