Beaker Street Festival

Sci Art Walks is a series of audio-escapes featuring fascinating talks by Tasmanian scientists and artists, with music composed by Tasmanian musicians. Each episode is paired with a suggested walking location in Tasmania, but you can listen from anywhere in the world. (Note: Sci Art Walks is best enjoyed with fresh air.)

Sci Art Walks is a project by Beaker Street Festival, an annual celebration of science and art in Hobart, Tasmania. The unusual circumstances of 2020 inspired us to innovate, and create something that would get people away from their screens and out into nature. You might say Sci Art Walks is a project for a pandemic. In times of uncertainty and anxiety, many of us find solace in our natural world. Creating these episodes was also a great opportunity to continue to facilitate collaborations between scientists and artists, and showcase some of the amazing talent and groundbreaking scientific research coming out of Tasmania.

Please help us spread the word about Sci Art Walks by sharing the website or podcast with friends, and consider downloading our poster and displaying it in your workplace, tourist accommodation … anywhere really!
