IngenuityFest Call for Entries


IngenuityFest 2013 Call for Entries Now Available

Deadline is Friday, March 29th

Ingenuity Cleveland is pleased to announce that that 2013 IngenuityFest Call for Entries is now available. The call is open to all – artists, creators, inventors, technologists, and makers – in any discipline and in any scale. The deadline to enter is Friday, March 29 at 11:59 PM.

The call can be accessed at, as well as more information about the Festival site, programming spaces available, the selection criteria, the selection team, and the Festival’s theme: Clouds. Creative individuals and groups can submit project proposals that explore the theme of Clouds in the context of Ingenuity’s overall mission of exploring the space where humanity and technology meet.

“Clouds in nature have inspired people since the beginning of time,” said James Krouse, Ingenuity’s Artistic Director. “But today Clouds are used to describe how we store information including photos, music, and writing. We are looking forward to seeing how creative people explore Clouds in both traditional and new ways.”

Ingenuity is also issuing a call for the Cleveland Mini Maker Faire which will be held in April. More information can be found at

“Maker Faire and IngenuityFest share a lot in common so we’re encouraging people to look at and participate in both, if they’re able,” said Krouse. “In fact, the Maker Faire could be a space where a project can be explored and then developed further for the Festival in September.”


Ingenuity highlights the creativity and innovation that make Cleveland a vibrant place to live. We ignite the creative spark where the arts, science, and technology intersect. By animating Cleveland’s urban spaces with world-class, innovative experiences, Ingenuity provides a unique platform for exploring the boundaries of arts, science, and technology. We do this through our innovative outreach programs, creative partnerships, and events including our annual IngenuityFest.

IngenuityFest is entering its 9th season and is funded by The George Gund Foundation, Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, The Cleveland Foundation, and the Ohio Arts Council as well as other businesses, non-profits, and private individuals. The three-day Festival, which currently creates a combined economic impact of $4.5 million to Cleveland’s economy, will return to Cleveland’s lakefront in September 2013.
