Case Study

Beverly Artist in Residence Program


The
Project

In the spring of 2021, Creative Collective was contracted by the City of Beverly to assist in their development of an Artist-in-Residence program.  Over the course of the three-month pilot program, Creative Collective established a system of procedures that will inform future iterations of such programs within this city. 

Project Timeline

Fall 2021


Actions

Our team directly supported the participating artist, acted as municipal and community liaison, contributed to all promotional aspects of the program, and provided consultancy and assistance where needed.

Impact

  • Supported local artists, makers, and/or members of the creative workforce by providing an accessible hub for them to produce and sell

  • Improved the vibrancy and social connectedness of downtown
  • Involved local building management and property owners in the program
  • Built a bridge between municipal and creative communities
  • Helped the City of Beverly recover from COVID-19 related shutdowns by increasing foot traffic downtown while also supporting the creative workforce.
