Australian Science Festival closes

You will have read the sad news that the  Canberra based Australian Science Festival will not happen this year and it’s future seems bleak.I am loath to speak in the past tense about the ASF and I hope that its book has not closed for good. ASF has been very influential on the science communication event scene in Australia. The ASF team has been a creative spark and I wish Mary-Anne and her team all the best for the immediate future. I’m hoping we still get to read a new chapter from them before long.
