Be a Light at the End of the Tunnel!

Your support helps us evolve, adapt, and foster economic and social recovery from the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Ingenuity is approaching today’s challenges head-on, with 2020 vision and an eye to the future. Current projects include:

IngenuityLabs Upgrades
IngenuityLabs is growing, and now is the perfect time to invest in our future. We’re reorganizing our incubator and building our capacity to serve as many artists, entrepreneurs, and visionaries as possible. Forward-looking improvements will not only support the health and safety of all visitors, but will pave the way for expansion to best enable the thought leaders and culture makers that change our communities for the better.


Economic Recovery
Our Ignite! Impact Awards promote equity through microgrants for a diverse group of creative entrepreneurs focused on social impact. We’re expanding this program for COVID-19 relief and inventive approaches to community recovery, plus offering new opportunities for artists to get on their feet and give back.


St. Clair-Superior Neighborhood Initiative
As we double down on our facility and long-term vision as a neighborhood social and economic hub, we’re working to promote connectivity in newly imagined programs (both in-person and digital) with an eye toward equity, wellness, and lasting resilience, in partnership with Famicos Foundation and neighborhood stakeholders.

All Light at the End of the Tunnel sponsorships are twice as bright!

Now more than ever, your help means resiliency and rebirth for our entire community.

Ingenuity stands at the ready to invest and make an impact: we’ve been planning for expansion to better serve our neighborhood and entire creative landscape. From new community partnerships to infrastructure updates to improved space & support for entrepreneurs, help us fast-track preparations TODAY and reap the benefits long into the future.

Your Light at the End of the Tunnel sponsorship is recognized through year-round visibility online, in printed materials and permanently on a large-scale sponsor wall in our upgraded IngenuityLabs.

The health and safety of our attendees, volunteers, partners and constituents remains our first priority.  The team at Ingenuity is closely monitoring the COVID-19 health crisis as we near the festival dates.  Any updates such as postponements, cancellations or otherwise will be posted on our website, through social media channels, and through our mailing list once confirmed.  We appreciate your patience and support during these uncertain and challenging times.
