I Am A Weapon.
"Being a creative means being able to unabashedly be yourself, any flavor of yourself, every day." -Jillian Adel
Weapons of Mass Creation Fest 7 took place this last weekend in Cleveland and I am thrilled to have experienced even some of it. Here's a short description of what it is:
"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 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!

The speakers, artists and vendors I met there were indeed life-altering and inspiring. I am so glad to have been there, as well as having fun in Cleveland with friends and enjoying the historic architecture in the city's beautiful neighborhoods. Here are some of my photos from the trip:
