This Friday, Tampire Task Force, a nonprofit organization that aims to empower women, hosts Bloom, an event to celebrate spring and raise awareness of human trafficking.

The event is in conjunction with Ingenuity Cleveland and is part of the Ignite! Impact Event Series and Ingenuity Youth Social Justice Weekend.

Other non-profits are heading to Bloom, so attendees can connect with human trafficking organizations and learn more about the issue. A few of them include the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center and the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland.



Five bands and five DJs start spinning tunes at 8 p.m. on warehouse stages, so guests can listen to performances while getting artsy with interactive art installations, live exhibitions and flow artist performances. Various local vendors, including Mo Bite Products, Fed Up Apparel and Kaleidoscope Art, will be on hand as well.

The Ingenuity Youth Social Justice Weekend continues on Saturday with Get Lit for Liberation from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. The event focuses on the injustices within the Cuyahoga county jail while mixing music, art and social justice.

The event is 21+. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
