Beakerhead is looking for you!

Original to Alberta and a first in the world - Beakerhead, a citywide collaboration of creativity and engineering, will consist of more than 60 arts, science, engineering and education organizations as program partners. The event will erupt in the streets and venues of Calgary for the first time this September 11-15, 2013. 

The five-day long event is designed to attract residents and tourists from around the world and includes free outdoor exhibits, street performances and ticketed events, and includes a citywide open-air museum called Beakernight and a speaker and workshop series called Speakerhead.

Beakerhead is currently seeking volunteers to fill over a hundred opportunities leading up to and during Beakerhead (September 11-15, 2013). Whether you have lots of time to commit, or just a handful of hours to lend your expertise, there’s something for everyone. We are looking for individuals of all ages and background, whether you are employed, a stay-at-home parent, retired or a student, we have a spot for you! Our programming team is hard at work highlighting fantastic opportunities to also get families and youth involved to lend a hand.  

Not only are we looking for general event volunteers, we are also looking for volunteers who are interested in expressing themselves creatively to build interactive items to show throughout Beakerhead. Our team can assist your group with providing workshop space and match you up with local collaborators to make your plans come to life.
