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 http://ingenuitycleveland.com/2013-call-for-entries, 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 use to describe how we store information including photos, music, and writing. We are looking forward to 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 www.makerfairecleveland.com.

“Maker Faire and IngenuityFest share a lot in common so we’re encouraging people to look at both 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.”
