Welcome to Ingenuity!

IngenuityFest 2019: Dreamscapes was September 27th-29th! More than 15,000 children, families, and members of our creative community experiences the collective daydream created by nearly 1000 participants – from artists to craft vendors, young entrepreneurs to youth performance groups, local & regional bands, the many volunteers who host and contribute to sustainability efforts, and of course our in-house creative collective, The Ingeneers.

There are still plenty of ways to stay involved in our year-round events, including visiting a session of Ignite!, or joining The Ingeneers every Thursday for a chance to work in our space, build and create, and network with some cool folks. 

If you want to make sure you never miss an event like IngenuityFest in the future, consider signing up to be an Agent of Ingenuity Member! Admission to all of our events is included in your membership, plus some fun offers and exclusive extras, like this year’s Flannel and Finery Holiday & Thank-You Party! Members are also recognized year-round on our website and in print.

Please explore the website, keep checking back, and visit our Facebook page. Thanks for all you do to make the creative landscape in Cleveland truly ingenious!
