ABOUT BEAKER STREET
Beaker Street is a not-for-profit organisation based in Hobart, Tasmania. Our aim is to promote the intersection of art and science, and to facilitate meaningful connections and collaborations amongst artists, scientists, and the public.
 
We do this through hosting events like our annual Science Photography Prize, projects like our Sci Art Walks podcast, the annual Beaker Street Festival, and all sorts of other things
