BEAKERHEAD: Skybeings


  • Eighth Avenue Place 525 - 8 Avenue Southwest Calgary, AB, T2P 1G1 Canada (map)

Can you find your way home by following the stars? Come to experience a multimedia installation merging three elements: a First Nations star legend, modern engineering, and new media based art.

Engage in a sensory experience that tells the story of the Big Dipper (ihkitsíkammiksi) and the legend of the seven brothers and their little sister who escaped conflict by becoming stars.

SHOWTIMES: September 13 - 17, 2017

Wednesday – Saturday
12:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Sunday
10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Skybeings is one of 14 sites across Beakerhead Snakes and Ladders; a larger-than-life adventure across multiple engineered experiences and artworks connected by a common theme: the ups and downs of invention. Each site will have a sign and board game tile - where you'll get to choose your own navigational adventure!
