Ingenuity Cleveland ignites the creative spark among artists, entrepreneurs and innovators, through joy and collaboration, in service to social progress. By animating Cleveland’s urban spaces with immersive, interactive experiences, educational programming, and community engagement, we provide a unique platform to inspire new audiences, push boundaries, foster growth, and stimulate economic impact. Ingenuity is a catalyst that revitalizes and reinterprets Cleveland.
Since our founding, audiences have come to count on us to provide one of the region’s most unique events, combining art and technology with creativity and innovation. IngenuityFest welcomes tens of thousands of attendees annually, and we’re thrilled to report that IngenuityFest 2022: Expo: Ingenuity was a smashing success, attracting over 15,000 attendees, featuring over 100 performances across six stages, and supporting over 200 individual artists, performers, entrepreneurs and creatives. We anticipate a tremendous festival in 2023 as we reset from the pandemic.
Since launching IngenuityLabs at the Hamilton Collaborative in 2017, Ingenuity has been focused on providing tools, space, resources and learning opportunities to help our city’s creative class thrive.
IngenuityLabs is our year-round home in the Hamilton Collaborative, and is also home to 18 small-scale creative start-ups, and a home-base for our volunteer-driven collective of more than 300 “Ingeneers” who meet weekly to build, vision, and create.
