LIVE ACTION ROLEPLAY, IMMERSIVE THEATRE TROUPE
When developing our company, Intramersive, we were faced with the issue of finding a way to describe our work in an emerging market unfamiliar to Salem, the North Shore, and even Boston. We immediately looked to the Creative Collective for advice, and got far more than we had ever anticipated. When it came to marketing our first show, Daemonologie, Creative Collective worked tirelessly to help us get our show information out to potentially interested attendees. From attending our rehearsals to have photo shoots with our actors, to promoting us on websites, blogs, and social media to boost our credibility online – Creative Collective gave us the boost most new companies could only wish for.

Creative Collective has been an essential ally to FunDead Publications. In 2016, FunDead was a brand-new, budding Salem publishing company with a very small, but loyal following. Creative Collective was key in shining a light on us to their many local, and not-so-local, followers. We were able to expand our audience by utilizing the Creative Collective social media platforms to reach new readers. Thanks to Creative Collective, we added hundreds of new followers to our own social media and saw exponential growth in our writing submission numbers.

“I am so appreciative of Creative Collective and all the opportunities they create for local artists like myself. Their team of inspiring individuals consistently thinks outside the box, and they do such an amazing job of fostering the art culture in the area. I’ve been a native of the North Shore all my life, and I can’t help but wonder what we did without Creative Collective all those years. The city has become a hot spot for creative culture, and we have the hard-working, talented people at Creative Salem to thank for much of that. So thanks, Creative Collective. Thank you for supporting art, for supporting music, for supporting the community of thinkers and dreamers and idealists here in Salem. You’re the best.”
Alyssa Conary – Namesake historical society for Salem, cultural advocates
“As a historian starting up a new non-profit in the city, the help and support I’ve received from John & Creative Collective has been invaluable. I honestly believe that my organization wouldn’t be as far along as it is without a leg-up from Creative Collective. CC has also been a supporter of my freelance music career. Through them, I’ve been connected to people and places and booked actual paying gigs. CC is what creatives in the city have always needed but never had. It’s a whole new game now.”
Creative North Shore celebrates and supports all things creative economy, arts and culture. Original content, photography, videography, stories and more all shared across various online and social platforms.
As part of the Essex County Community Foundations 'Creative County Initiative" we are leading a project to build the first county wide events calendar and online platform.
A regional online website and calendar will allow artists and organizations to promote their events and activities directly to the general public. This platform will foster resource sharing and communication across the arts community: public art forums, resource tools, classifieds and more.
www.EssexCountyCreates.org will launch in April 2018.
