Crossing Water (Sept. 7-14, 2019) is a week-long arts festival presented by Montserrat College of Art, that brings together the Salem and Beverly communities by fostering creation and connection through all forms of art—visual, narrative, performance, audio, and more. From lighting the bridge to poetry readings (and everything in between), Crossing Water will feature eight days of programming along the waterfronts on both sides of the Beverly-Salem bridge. This project is partially funded by Essex County Community Foundation. All photos by Creative Collective for Creative North Shore. More info on the project here.

This event was produced by the Bridge Street Neck Neighborhood Association as part of the Crossing Water Festival.
