Every September, Beakerhead erupts onto the streets and venues of Calgary with clever and creative works of engineered art. This is a proposals call for community-built creations that could be a part of this ruckus. One or more of the proposed designs may be eligible for financial support to turn your design into reality!

What is the design challenge?

Beakerhead is looking for delightful and inspiring pieces that open an entertaining door to the world of science and engineering.

Thank you to The Calgary Foundation for making these community-built creations possible.

Who can take part?

Calgary communities, neighbourhoods or groups are invited to design something – mobile or stationary – that could be a conversation starter within the community, or between communities (and the world!) about making a better world by bringing art and engineering together. All proposed designs should be envisioned as projects that would require community volunteers, young and old alike, to build, drawing on both creative and technical skills.

Important dates

  • January 30, 2016: deadline for design concepts
  • February 10, 2016: projects that will receive financial support will be notified
  • September 14: unveiling of the project and shared between September 14 – 18, 2016
