NOTE: I’ve been commissioned by the Essex County Community Foundation to help document/promote cultural projects from its Creative County Initiative, which is supported by Boston’s Barr Foundation.
Crossing Water, from Sept. 7 to 14, is a week-long arts festival that aims to “bring together the Salem and Beverly communities by fostering creation and connection through all forms of art.” It’s funded by the Essex County Community Foundation’s Creative County Initiative, one of a dozen cultural efforts that the initiative, with backing from Boston’s Barr Foundation, is supporting to mobilize North Shore artists, arts organizations and community and business leaders to enhance life in Essex County.
