Calling all chatterboxes! Beakerhead invites you to unleash your thoughts and ideas at Speakerhead, the one-of-a-kind video talk-back booth in Calgary. Step up and draft a 60-second letter-to-the-editor-style clip where you can freely express your views on the matters that resonate with you most. With a selection of prompts to choose from, let your ideas flow! Join the vibrant conversation that unfolded during Speakerhead’s debut at Beakerhead in 2022, where over 900 enthusiastic participants shared their diverse ideas, musings, and even showcased their best dance moves over the festival. Keep an eye out for our visually striking pop-up booth, a collaborative creation by RocketHouse, Fracture-a-Femur Productions, and TechArt Custom Creations. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our Breakerfriends, with special thanks to the Calgary Foundation for their unwavering support. Let your voice be heard and seize the incredible opportunity to engage, inspire and make a lasting impact at Speakerhead!
