Weapons of Mass Creation Fest by Go Media

The Weapons of Mass Creation Fest has been compared to SXSW and the 99% conference… but with an indie/DIY flavor. Part conference, part concert, part design show, and part festival: “Weapons of Mass Creation is a young grassroots movement to inspire and enable the creative mind.” I didn’t make last year and I’m going to fight like hell to get there this year. If you can make it, then definitely do not miss it!

What is WMCF?

WMC Fest is a fest for those who live to create! A weekend community event taking place in the Gordon Square Arts District on Cleveland’s west side. It was founded by Jeff Finley of the Cleveland-based creative agency Go Media. Only in its second year, it’s already generating lots of buzz within the creative community. Come to WMC Fest to network, collaborate, get inspired, learn new tricks, and level up! Did I mention it’s a fest? That means fun!

The Goal

Weapons of Mass Creation is a young grassroots movement to inspire and enable the creative mind. We believe that good things happen when ideas and talents are shared within the community. This mentality manifests itself in the lifestyle of a Weapon of Mass Creation. A person who defies the hand they’re dealt and makes stuff happen.

Once a year, we have WMC Fest; the annual gathering of this community right here in Cleveland, OH. We celebrate and showcase the creative visionaries who embody this lifestyle. We bring the movement to the masses. Some have compared WMC Fest to SXSW, Brooklyn Beta, FITC, or the 99% Conference but with an indie/diy flavor. We aren’t exactly trying to be like them, but the comparison is flattering nonetheless. It’s part conference, part concert, part art show, and part festival. It’s simply WMC Fest!
WMC Fest is about Inspiring and Helping Others.

WMCF is about Inspiration

This is where leaders are born. We’ve hand picked 20 inspiring visionaries to present their work and their ideas. Attendees will enjoy 10 inspiring talks per day on the subjects of graphic design, art, entrepreneurship, leadership, productivity, creativity, and more. Creative leaders both local and national will present at the Reinberger Auditorium. This is WMC Fest’s feature presentation and admission is $10 per day. That’s only $1 per talk. Compare that to other design conferences!

Forward-thinking Art & Design

The event will also include a free jaw-dropping art and design show highlighting both local and regional talent. Curated by Go Media and the Wall Eye Gallery, expect to see some amazing work. This won’t be like your typical art show with oil paintings, crafts, or abstract modern art. Think album art, t-shirt design, typography, poster art, toy design, fashion design, and illustration.

WMCF is about Music

WMC Fest is a place you go to experience raw and authentic music so intimate that it gives you chills. The Happy Dog will host 10 local and national bands per day. $5 gets you in to see all the bands per day. Musically, expect a diverse and creative sound with a proudly independent spirit.

$1/Ticket Benefits A.R.M.

For every ticket sold, $1 will go to benefit Anonymous Relief Mission, a non-profit organization that helps people move into a home from off the street. They supply furniture, supplies, and labor to help do the moving.
