Ingenuity Cleveland is on the move! In 2016, after over a decade of work in downtown Cleveland, we decided to root our organization in a neighborhood that we could help revitalize and uplift: St Clair Superior. We are building off of some great successes – the 2016 IngenuityFest drew thousands to a former factory and its story has been gaining momentum ever since.

So with that, we ask you: will you join us? Ingenuity has a number of benefits for St Clair Superior and the city as a whole:

  • Ingenuity presents educational exhibits that draw enthusiasm and spark curiosity from all ages. We’ve been leading our community in the Maker Movement since 2012 when we produced the first annual Cleveland Mini Maker Faire in partnership with the Cleveland Public Library.
  • Neighborhood Revitalization – St Clair Superior is a diverse and largely underserved neighborhood. Rooting our organization and the festival in the Hamilton Collaborative not only draws attention to the area but allows us to engage with the community members and provide them with tools and resources.
  • Enforce sustainable practices. Rust Belt Riders, an eco-composting group, has moved in and is working to reduce our region’s food waste as well as teach sustainable practices in an on-site community garden.
  • Provide life-long learning. IngenuityLabs tenants and community members alike can use this building as a place to co-work, make, share and inspire.

Thank you to our 2016 sponsors!
