Creative Salem celebrates the city of Salem as a hub of creativity, and is dedicated to promoting collaboration, facilitating quality artistic events, and providing contemporary tools for local creative professionals to find and connect with new audiences while encouraging them to apply their skills to help solve challenges facing the community.

So how do we do that?
By fostering local creatives with a network and platform to showcase their skills and talents.  We facilitate creative networking, gather comprehensive event listings, provide online creative professional bio pages, consult, and stand as a central curation point for all the wonderful things currently happening, and those on the horizon around Salem.

How do you benefit? Why should you care?
In one location you can find out what is happening on any day.  At Creative Salem, we work tirelessly to provide the most complete and detailed listing for the thousands of events taking place in Salem, MA.  Here you'll find fresh, original content (photos, poetry, blog posts, reviews) created by locals for locals. It is a central location in which to dig deeper into the creative community, a resource for the community to get to know the people who make so much of what we experience around us every day, and a reference for public art and information about this historic and magical city.

Do you love what we do and want to help? 
Creative Salem is in beta 2.0 form, and feedback, suggestions, and new ideas are essential. Help us help you: we want your events, so add to your press list and keep the releases and info coming for your organization. We also really enjoy community submissions!  Please send us your images, stories, poetry, illustrations, sketches, blog posts and whatever else you create that has to do with the city of Salem. Send any of these submissions to
