ART, SCIENCE, COMMUNITY IN TASMANIA
WHO WE ARE
Beaker Street is a not-for-profit organisation in Tasmania that exists to promote the intersection of art and science. We facilitate collaborative projects amongst artists, scientists, and the public. We host engaging and interactive events, workshops, talks, discussions, and installations. We believe every pub should have a microscope and every scientific talk should have live music, and probably a bar too. Check out our team on our About page.
Our flagship event is Beaker Street Festival, a celebration of science and art, which takes place around Tasmania, with a hub at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, each August.

"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."
— Dr Karl
