The seventh annual Weapons of Mass Creation Fest will take place at Playhouse Square in the Ohio, Kennedy and State Theatres Aug. 5 through 7. Tickets are available at playhousesquare.org, by phone at (216) 241-6000 or by visiting the Playhouse Square Ticket Office.
In August, creative professionals, entrepreneurs, artists, students, and fans will gather in Cleveland to learn, be inspired, collaborate, network and celebrate their passion for art, design, and entrepreneurship.
Created by Go Media, a creative studio in Cleveland, Weapons of Mass Creation Fest is highly applauded for dedication to education. They continue to provide opportunities for their attendees to grow and challenge themselves at every turn. More than any year before, Go Media will create an interactive environment that encourages everyone involved to push themselves creatively and personally. This year, the group will take over the Ohio and Kennedy Theatres, as well as the State Theatre Lobby, at Playhouse Square in the heart of downtown Cleveland.
Go Media is putting more focus on engaging and motivating talks by bringing in speakers like nationally recognized, Grammy award-winning designer Stefan Sagmeister, as well as heavy hitters including Debbie Millman, host of Design Matters (the world's first podcast about design) and President Emeritus of AIGA (one of four women to hold the position in the organization's 100-year history). Cleveland design legend Aaron Sechrist will return to serve as host.
Also on tap for this year, aside from a core group of speakers, include workshops and panel discussions. Dynamic events, including Ink Wars and the Go Media Podcast, will be returning and the Go Media Cleveland studio tour will kick off the three day event.
The Vendor Village will be a hub of activity, featuring live art battles and podcasts. This space will be fully immersive, allow attendees to get their hands dirty and create while interacting with vendors like never before. Tickets for the event are now on sale. Three-day passes will include admittance to all events, with the exception of the workshops, which are ticketed individually.
