Essem Art Studio & Co-Create Space is a collaborative work space for creatives—designers, illustrators, digital artists, bloggers, photographers, videographers, hand-letterers, freelance marketers— awesome people who generally make/do cool things. We are cultivating a community of kind, respectful, social, and neighborly creatives who want to make the world around them better and more beautiful. We are currently showing the space and accepting new members on a rolling basis. Space is limited by design.

Essem also serves as HQ  for CMBOS, the team of big-hearted folks behind CreativeMornings/Boston, a volunteer-powered, free breakfast lecture series for the creative community (CMBOS is just one of 188 city chapters around the globe). Owner & Studiomate, Sophia Moon is the host of CreativeMornings’ Boston chapter.
