Festival Description

beakerheadlogocolour-sm2bScience and technology just got mainstream –and spectacular!

Beakerhead is an annual smash up of art, science and engineering! On the surface, it looks like a week of spectacular fun but it’s way more than a city wide schedule of awesome events. It’s a time and place where engineers show their creative sides, artists get technical, where science hits the street, and everyone gets ingenious. Leading with hands-on entertainment, Beakerhead advances the understanding of science and engineering as part of everyday life – through art and culture.

Kinda, sorta, not really a festival!

Beakerhead isn’t actually a festival, though the annual smash-up of its programs do feel festive! Beakerhead is a registered charity that works year-round to bring the arts and engineering sectors together. It focuses on building bridges and inclusiveness – reaching from school programs to community builds to international contests. When you welcome science and engineering through a world of art and entertainment, a lot can happen!

Coming soon to a neighbourhood near you!

When Beakerhead erupts as a live science event every year, it’s hands-on and citywide, taking place indoors and out. It includes ticketed and free events, and involves venues and public spaces throughout Calgary, Alberta, Canada!

Mark your calendars for September 19-23, 2018 when Beakerhead takes over Calgary with a smash up of art, science and engineering! From citywide, pop-up engineered art galleries and flame-spitting, larger-than-life public art encounters to the entertaining science of … everything, there’s something for everyone! Those seeking to be the first to experience the latest and greatest will love getting up close and personal with the world’s famous and soon-to-be-famous artists, scientists, engineers and social entrepreneurs.

Beakerhead Creative Society is a registered Canadian charity whose mandate is to advance education at the crossroads of art, science and engineering!
