Ingenuity Cleveland ignites the creative spark among artists, makers, and entrepreneurs, through joy and collaboration. IngenuityFest 2019: Dreamscapes celebrates the organization’s 15th year by bringing you an entire fantasy, vividly imagined, waiting behind the doors of the 350,000-square-foot Hamilton Collaborative.
