Fluevog packages up the #OtherHandChallenge

CJ from John Fluevog Shoes in Calgary took the Beakerhead ‪#‎OtherHandChallenge‬ and showed us that we should not leave packaging Christmas gifts with our non-dominant hand … unless we wanted to be included in the packaging!

Donations to Beakerhead for the creation of life-long learning programs at the crossroads of art and science, are always welcome and appreciated – click here to donate.

Show, Don’t Tell – Photography and Graphic Design Exhibition

When Beakerhead erupted for five days in September, 22 photographers and 15 graphic artists set out to capture the visual stories taking shape. Dozens of brilliant photographs and images were the result. Now, renowned photographer, George Webber, has selected 33 of the most intriguing for a special exhibition of the best of Beakerhead 2015.

Why 33?

On the Newton scale, 33 is the temperature at which water boils. And when water boils, you get steam, and steam is the acronym used in educational circles to refer to the convergence of science, technology, engineering, art and math. It’s just good chemistry!

The 33 artworks will be on display and available for sale in a 12-day exhibition titled Show, Don’t Tell at the Peanut Gallery in John Fluevog Shoes (207 8 Ave SW, Gallery Floor).


Photographers: Shawn Bishop – Inno Delarmente III – Clare Gibson – Andre Goulet – Jackie Ho – Denise Kitagawa – Chris Malloy – Brett Morrison – Nic Sharkey – Gilles Thibault – Gemma Wallace.

Graphics Artists: Carolyn Fisher – Sam Hester – Alanna Kho – Kelly Lai – James Liswed – Michael Mateyko – Jarett Sitter – Stephanie Stobart – Tilby Forbis – Kipling West.

Is a Fitter Musician a Better Musician?

Wonderment of Beakerhead 2014: Photo Recap feature.

Would you believe musicians might be in better physical shape than athletes? In 2014, guests found out, in this full-on talk experience with Dr. Terry Clark, how high the energy demands are on musicians. Science tells us a lot about ways to enhance musical training.

Thanks again to cellists are Allegra Courtright and Matt Perera for being science subjects and Fluevog Shoes for providing such an awesome venue!
