This Is Ingenuity

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.

Our 2017 theme, Metamorphosis, was inspired by our changing Cleveland, but also by the work we’ve undertaken as an organization to expand our mission, broaden our consulting and outreach, and especially to deepen our impact as a catalyst and driver for the brand-new Hamilton Collaborative in St. Clair-Superior.

In 2018 our theme Future/Past celebrates the return of cherished traditions melded with the drive toward progress, forging a reimagined future of community, localism, and humanistic technologies. It represents a homecoming in many ways: our former industrial facility reawakening with new art and manufacturing, whimsical ideation, and a hum of imagination from the many renaissance women and men who call the Collaborative home.
