Calling all who are brave enough to venture beyond time and through space: The Time Traveler’s Bal is a not-so-fancy–and slightly off-kilter evening – an unforgettable opportunity to celebrate our past and sustain our future in support of our year-round programming and IngenuityFest 2018: FuturePast, September 28-30.

IngenuityLabs, the Sixth City’s foremost space for inventors, Ingeneers, and intrepid itinerants, has suffered the explosion of a homemade time machine, opening portals to the Future and the Past! Pick your way through the frozen remnants of the last ice age, duck around mega flora and fauna of the late Carboniferous, and the steaming remnants of Earth’s volcanic beginning. Wear goggles and boots, spacesuits, corset and gloves, or whatever finery and accouterment best prepare you for a journey through the ages.

Our annual Bal unites artists, makers, entrepreneurs, and performers in the creation of a unique landscape that traverses time and space through interesting themed enclaves to explore, art, music, dance, and fabulous food.

Our 2018 theme, FuturePast, celebrates the return of cherished traditions melded with the drive toward a reimagined future. It represents a homecoming in many ways: we reawaken our home at a former-industrial facility with new art and manufacturing, whimsical ideation, and a hum of imagination from the many artists, inventors, and renaissance (wo)men who call the Hamilton Collaborative home.

What should you expect? Some of our favorite artists and partners, new and old, will be participating and performing!
