Carol Davidson

Before moving into roles as producer and director of major festivals including the Out of the Box festival, the Brisbane Asia Pacific Film Festival and the Brisbane Writers Festival, Carol had a long career in book publishing. An avid reader from childhood she achieved a long-held dream to work in books by securing an entry level role into the publishing industry early in her career; she went on to be the publisher at the University of Queensland Press where she worked with some of Australia’s most prestigious authors and then onto international publishing as the director of sales and marketing and international publishing director for Random House Australia. Carol is currently the Executive Producer of the World Science Festival Brisbane, presented by the Queensland Museum.
