We've got news

Beaker Street Festival is exploring new directions this year, and we're thrilled to announce an all-new, all-Tasmanian project called SCI ART WALKS. A few facts:
  • It's not virtual, and you don't need a screen to participate.
  • It features some of Tasmania's most prominent and accomplished scientists, musicians, and cultural icons.
  • It will get you off your arse! and out into our state's most stunning natural environments.
  • We've covered nearly every corner of Tassie, so you can stay local or use it as an excuse to check out somewhere new, and learn something too.
  • It's accessible to anyone, from anywhere in the world. And it's free.
  • Coming to you in August during National Science Week. Register here, and we'll keep you in the loop. Promise we won't spam you. Click HERE to learn more.
Beaker Street is a scientist-run social enterprise based in Tasmania.
Feel like playing with a microscope at a pub? Chatting about evolution with a world-leading scientist? Meeting some new and interesting people? 
You've come to the right place.
We host events, workshops, talks, discussions, and create interactive spaces where everyone is invited to participate in scientific discovery.
Every August for the Beaker Street festival, we turn the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, and some of Hobart's most iconic spaces and places, into a scientific wonderland for adults. Want to learn more? Keep on scrollin'
The Beaker Street festival is a celebration of science and art in Tasmania.

"More engaging and interactive than anything I've done anywhere else in Australia. Especially leading a dancing, New Orleans-style jazz band into the museum, followed by a few hundred people."
