Anyone who has known Stuart for any length of time knows that he enjoys going to technology and arts events. IngenuityFest is his favorite event of the year. Most years that Stuart has been able to attend, he has gone all three days -- he tries to live the event, and drink in all that it has to offer. See our blog post from 2012: IngenuityFest:Festival of Art & Technology
Julie, Kevin, and Stuart attended much of the weekend's activities, but found that there was more to do than anyone can fit in one weekend. We recommend that you take a look at the links in the tweets, since they will lead you to more information about the participants. You can also see the full official program from the weekend by selecting this link.
The following are our photos, videos, and Stuart's @sos_jr tweets/retweets about and from the September 20-22, 2013, weekend event. Our goal is to give you a taste of the our experience and to encourage you to attend in the future.
Ingenuity Is Now Year-Round
Before looking at what we are sharing from the weekend event, we recommend reading Ingenuity Cleveland's history page to learn more about how it was formed in 2004. It started as an annual festival that has grown to now providing year-around programming including: IngenuityLabs, The Ingenuity Conference, Creative Fusion Artist, Cleveland Mini Maker Faire (MakerFaireCleveland.com - @MakerFaireCleve), IndieFest and Workshop, and The Bal Ingénieux (Balingenieux.com).
With all the new Ingenuity Cleveland (IngenuityCleveland.com - @Ingenuityfest) events, IngenuityFest is still Stuart's favorite. In 2013, IngenuityFest took place at the Port of Cleveland for the second consecutive year. It more than lived up to our expectations.
