Celebrating its 15th year making creative intersections of art, science, and technology accessible to all, Ingenuity Cleveland brings you an entire fantasy, vividly imagined, awaiting behind the Hamilton Collaborative’s doors.

This year’s theme, Dreamscapes, is the surreal creation of a living daydream: celebrating the hopes and aspirations stirring in our region's vast creative community, and manifesting those dreams into a reality through nonstop, immersive experiences. This event unites more than 20,000 artists and art-lovers from all over Ohio, and actively represents the diversity of interests and skills this incredible community has to offer, empowering artists to bring their dreams to fruition.

Attendees will wind their way through the multi-level Hamilton Collaborative warehouse with eight uniquely themed villages, each featuring dozens of individual exhibits. This year’s Fest will see the return of villages like Makers Mecca, showcasing everything from robotics, virtual reality, and 3-D printing technologies to tinkering and crafting, allowing the young and young-at-heart to get in touch with their inner DIY enthusiast and make hands-on creations. New in 2019 is IngenuiTree Isle, entirely dedicated to sustainability and Wellness Way, where attendees can focus on mind, body, and spirit. At Dreamscapes, six stages will bring you more than just lullabies. From the intimate feel and intriguing antics of the Ingenuity Cabaret; the local and touring acts at Music Meadow; to the deep beats and multi-media dance of the Tesseract Stage, audiences can appreciate performance at its best.
