Beakerhead Creative Society is the organizing team at the heart of an annual movement that culminates in a five-day spectacle bringing together the arts and engineering sectors to build, engage, compete and exhibit interactive works of art, engineered creativity and entertainment. The society’s activities at the provincial, national and international level are coordinated by a core secretariat located in Calgary, Alberta.
Starting September 2013, and annually after that, Beakerhead will be a five-day citywide, highly participatory event that explodes in Calgary’s major educational institutions, arts and culture venues, on the streets and in communities.
Beakerhead transforms Calgary – with contests, mechanical sculpture gardens, robot fashion shows, interactive street art, feats of engineering, larger-than-life theatre, and spectacular performances. – less
