The vision of the festival is to get people believing in a world where every person has the confidence, the courage and the opportunity to be curious. The Festival of Curiosity came about when Dublin was the City of Science 2012, winning the bid to host of the Euroscience Open Foum in July 2012 and is now an annual event.
