Ingenuity Cleveland ignites the spark of creativity among artists, entrepreneurs and innovators of all types, through joy and collaboration, in service to civic progress. With our annual IngenuityFest and year-round programming, we inspire audiences, push boundaries, empower communities and generate economic impact, all while changing attitudes about our region.
IngenuityFest 2017 took place at the Hamilton Building from September 22-23 and featured five fully-programmed stages, dozens of art-tech installations, maker exhibits, and dance performances. A diverse audience of over 15,000 people attended, including families with children, youth, young professionals, and seniors.
IngenuityLabs complements the Festival by providing tools, space and resources to artists and entrepreneurs working on-site to build new projects or scale business ventures. We are building additional programming around IngenuityLabs to serve the annual cohort of 6-10 incubated projects, as well as the broader community.
The Ingeneers is the volunteer-driven group of nearly 50 Ingeneers who meet weekly in the space to socialize and share skills, create large-scale works of art, and improve the former industrial space Ingenuity occupies
Ingenuity also consulted on place-making projects for the City of Shaker Heights, including the Moreland Rising project and the Shaker Maker Fair.
