Beakerhead 2017

Mark your calendars for September 13-17, 2017 when Beakerhead erupts in Calgary!

Beakerhead is an annual program that brings together the arts, sciences, and engineering sectors to build, engage, compete, and exhibit interactive works of art, engineered creativity and entertainment.

Year-round programming and community-connecting culminates in a five-day citywide spectacle consisting over over 60 events centred around delightfully bizarre engineered installations and artworks.

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!

While the streets erupt with free cultural experiments, there are exquisite ticketed food experiences, shows, performances and workshops to take in.

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.

And, get this. Beakerhead says, “Yes, please touch the art!”
