Ingenuity Fest 2017

Theme: Metamorphosis

NOFS Team

NOFS will be tabling this year at Ingenuity Fest.  Stop by and learn how Freethinkers have driven innovation throughout the years.

September 22-24, 2017

Friday 5 pm – 1 am

Saturday 12 pm – 1 am

Sunday 12 pm – 5 pm

5401 Hamilton Avenue



The festival will present a range of performances, exhibits, and activities including dance, music, interactive exhibits, hands-on maker activities, local vendors, and more. In addition, a new cohort of IngenuityLabs projects, incubating artists and entrepreneurs on site, will be on display. Offerings from local food vendors and Cleveland breweries will be available. Admission to the event is $5 for adults and free to kids 12 and under.

This year, Ingenuity’s theme of “Metamorphosis” will serve as an inspiration for participants. This theme is emblematic of the evolution of our organization and transformation of the neighborhood. We are proud to announce the return of IndusTree Alley, Makers Mecca, ARTchiTECHtonica, MOTOmagination Station, Music Meadow and more, in addition to a range of projects which exemplify metamorphosis in all of its beautiful intricacy.






MISSION STATEMENT
We are dedicated to preserving the constitutional principle of separation of church and state and educating the public on matters relating to nontheism.





"An Atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An atheist believes that deed must be done instead of prayer said. An atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty vanished, war eliminated."  

-Madalyn Murray O'Hair
