The Ingeneers: We’re a crew that meets regularly year-round, and we’re responsible for a TON of the awesome exhibits at IngenuityFest, as well as for building IngenuityLabs and the Hamilton Collaborative into a large-scale community resource. With more than 100 members, we truly do represent creatives of all types – from tool-wielding carpenters to fine artists to marketing gurus!

Winter/Spring: Build art for our annual partnership with Brite Winter and get ready for our spring programming and fundraisers like the annual Ingenuity Bal! Build the large-scale, immersive artwork that creates otherwordly experiences, or help out at the event itself with programming, greeter, catering and more: We’ll need volunteers stationed at check-in, hosting themed areas, working with our restaurant team and more!
Summer/Autumn: This is our busiest event season! Learn about festival art and production, construct spaces within our festival site, or join a street team. These jobs get into the down and dirty, but are a guaranteed fun time with new skills and new friends!
The Fest (late September): We count on hundreds of volunteers over the weekend in September to assist artists, help at check-in, sell merchandise, and so much more.
