“As an institution that readily embraces innovation and creativity in all forms, we are thrilled to launch our TikTok Creator-in-Residence program,” said Dr. Kurt Steinberg, PEM’s Chief Operating Officer and former President of Montserrat College of Art. “This program offers a singular opportunity for art school students to combine their love of art and culture with a valuable experience in content creation and brand building. We look forward to working with a talented content creator to find surprising and entertaining new ways to highlight the programs, collections, and people that make the Peabody Essex Museum a world-renowned organization.”

The TikTok Creator-in-Residence program will enable the chosen creator to hone their skills, gain workplace experience, and build their portfolio. The application process requires a portfolio of TikTok videos showcasing creativity, storytelling, and production skills.

“We are excited to see the energy that PEM’s TikTok Creator-in-Residence will bring to the museum, and we look forward to collaborating with them to bring the museum’s art and collections to new audiences,” said Derek O’Brien, PEM’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Through this new initiative, we hope to inspire and engage with art enthusiasts across the region and around the globe.”
