Join Patience Hodgson (former front-woman of The Greats and creator of Brisbane Festival 2022's Raise the Roof: LOVERPALOOZA) and Associate Professor Mark Blaskovich from The University of Queensland's Institute for Molecular Bioscience as they get down and flirty!

Will there be chemistry? You betcha. From pheromones and first dates to superbugs and life-saving drugs - the worlds of art and science meet in a collision of curiosity.

About Brisbane Festival

IMB is partnering with the Brisbane Festival to ask the big - and small - questions and discover what makes our city tick. 

Join us for our Sip and Science series where we explore the intersection of art and science through three conversations between artists and researchers; discover Ephemeral - a free art installation by award-winning Atelier Sisu, located in the BOQ Festival Garden at South Bank; and participate in our fun school holiday program!
