Quantum Words Festival

A new festival created to engage curious and questioning minds will land in Perth in November. Quantum Words is a festival dedicated to science, innovation and wonder and will feature outstanding thinkers, scientists and creators from across Australia and overseas.

Presented by Writing WA in association with Writing NSW, Quantum Words Perth will delve into everything from climate change to orangutan protection, water, ‘alternative facts’, and Indigenous knowledge. Festival guests already confirmed include must-see New York-based rap artist and playwright, Baba Brinkman, best known for his ‘Rap Guide’ science-based hip hop albums and theatre shows.

Baba has been called “astonishing and brilliant” by the New York Times and was a Scotsman Fringe First Award winner at the Edinburgh Fringe. His latest science/rap/comedy show, about the neuroscience of consciousness, recently concluded an eight-month run off-Broadway. Also confirmed is Leif Cocks, founder and President of the Orangutan Project, International Elephant Project and International Tiger Project and author of Finding Our Humanity and Amazon bestseller Orangutans: My Cousins, My Friends.
