At the 2018 Peabody Essex Museum Block party Creative Collective was in charge of managing a street fair as part of this annual celebration. Over 30 artists, crafters, makers and creatives set up on the Peabody Essex Museum campus giving our members and other vendors a very unique experience and opportunity!

Testimonial from Creative Engagement Producer for the Peabody Essex Museum Doneeca Thurston

What is there not to love about working with Creative Collective!? I recently partnered with them on our second block party event at PEM in July. Last year we got about 1,000 people and knew that attendees would be looking for even more this year. Creative Collective put together an incredible vendor fair, featuring a large number of their business members and businesses local to the North Shore. The fair started three hours before the event and drew a crowd right away! It was the perfect addition to the block party and really emphasized the community feel we were going for. I’m pretty sure there were a good number of people who came just for the vendor fair and ended up sticking around for the block party. We had over 4,000 people attend the event and it was great to see so many happy faces, vendors included. Creative Collective did a fantastic job of recruiting the vendors, helping them set up, and making sure the vendors had a positive experience. I can always trust the Creative Collective team with any task or project, because they always deliver. Thank you John, Roby, and Kati!
