 EXPERIENCE and exhibit...
Community members rely on ideastream to routinely share stories showcasing the remarkable art and cultural offerings in the region. And Making It, a series launched in 2017, did just that. These digital-forward pro les highlighted Northeast Ohioans who follow their dreams while trying to make a living. Features included welders who create furniture, a musician who developed a portable recording studio and more. With each published story, online audiences showed enthusiasm towards one of the region’s most valuable assets, its people. “Just wonderful! Keep it local,” a viewer commented on a story featuring the Rust Belt Riders who collect and compost food waste.
