IngenuityLabs

A Multifaceted, Multipurpose

creative space

IngenuityLabs has two main purposes. First and foremost, IngenuityLabs is the name for our 40,000+ square-foot facility. It's where we host events like IngenuityFest and the Bal! It's where we welcome artists, creatives, entrepreneurs to congregate, access tools, shop supplies and utilize each other's expertise and more.

IngenuityLabs is also a workspace for incubator tenants (IngenuityLabs Members) and folks who need a space to create their big, loud, and sometimes messy art (IngenuityLabs Associates). Learn more about each of these programs below.

Accelerate your growth surrounded by like-minded creative folks

The IngenuityLabs Incubator Program is part residency, part accelerator for creatives ready to get serious and bring their creative business ideas to life. It allows select Ingenuity tenants access to shared shop space, shared tools, and their own studio/workshop space. Their time at IngenuityLabs culminates in an onsite exhibit at IngenuityFest. After the Fest, projects are reviewed and offered the opportunity to extend their stay. Additional opportunities, including workshops in skills like marketing and grant writing, as well as periodic open-houses, are available to our incubatees.

Space and participation is available to creatives of all stripes – artisans, entrepreneurs, start-ups and more. Our program is ideal for artists looking to make use of our unique industrial space, entrepreneurs looking to scale up, and new projects that make unique use of our unique environment for collaboration and cross pollination. All grantees MUST exhibit during the festival.

Special consideration given to projects with a focus on interdisciplinary works, community outreach and civic progress. Applicants should be prepared to show how their project is at a “threshold” which will benefit from incubation.

We also expect that applicants will participate fully in our community, and take advantage of additional program offerings. We also consider your feedback a crucial aspect of the experience!

INGENUITYLABS ASSOCIATES

For your 5-9 after your 9-5

IngenuityLabs Associates are folks looking for a big, loud, dirty, messy space to let their hair down and pursue their passion projects. Whether that means they just need a place to come experiment with different artistic mediums from our supply shelves or they need a place to store their basketweaving supplies that have outgrown their living room, they have a place at IngenuityLabs. Associates have access to a shared space and shop tools as well as a year-round personal locker where they can store tools and items for their projects.
