It is with deep regret that we would like to inform you that the  
Australian Science Festival will no longer take place due to  
circumstances beyond our control.

We would like to sincerely thank all our partners and participants for  
the wonderful support they have given the festival and the ASF Limited  
over the many years.

It has been a great 19 years. We have many beautiful memories and been  
granted the wonderful opportunity of working with brilliant minds

We have delivered an amazing number of inspiring events and become a  
beacon for science communication in the ACT and in Australia. Among  
our long list of achievements, the ASF Limited has:

Launched the careers of dozens of science communicators around  
Australia,
Inspired every state in Australia to put on science festivals by  
establishing National Science Week and running it for eight years,
Received numerous awards,
Attained exceptional media awareness for science and science research,
Generated enormous exposure through public events, ABC Radio National  
broadcasts and television shows delivered to audiences in the millions,
Promoted entrepreneurship, creativity and commercialisation to the  
business community through ICAN, Canberra’s Ideas and Innovation  
Festival, that ran for five years, and
Most importantly, harnessed science to stimulate, amaze and inspire  
hundreds of thousands of school-aged children from Canberra and those  
visiting from around Australia.
The office will remain open until the end of April, if you need to  
contact us, please do so on 02 6205 0588.
