Welcome to CreativeGround!

CreativeGround is the next step in the digital evolution of NEFA’s online services and replaces MatchBook.org and CultureCount, which have been used by the creative community of New England since 2006 and 2008, respectively. 

CreativeGround is dedicated to spotlighting the rich range of creative people and places at work in the six New England states. This online directory includes profiles for cultural nonprofits like libraries and theaters, creative businesses like television studios and design agencies, and artists of all disciplines such as performing arts, visual arts, and crafts.

All active MatchBook.org and CultureCount public profiles were automatically and securely migrated to CreativeGround, so if you had a profile in either site, it's already in here! Now is the time to dust off the old profile and freshen up with some new photos and details in CreativeGround.

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS THE FIRST TIME YOU LOG IN TO CREATIVEGROUND.

  • Begin by resetting your password using  this link. Use your MatchBook.org or CultureCount username for your email. Please note that if you had a CultureCount user account, then your username will now be the email address associated with that user account.
  • You'll receive an email with a link to create your new password.
  • Once you save your new password, click on 'My Account' and you'll see a link to edit the public profile that came over from CultureCount or MatchBook.org and is already associated with your account.
  • If you don't see a link to edit an existing public profile, follow the instructions to search CreativeGround and request management of an existing profile, or create a new profile.

Among the over 30,000 profiles on CreativeGround you can find Native American artists, teaching artists, performance and exhibition venues, cultural organizations, creative economy leaders, and much more. We're so glad you're here, and we hope you return often - to find colleagues from around the corner or across state lines, update your profile, or tell us how you're doing.

Feel free to contact us with any questions, and have fun browsing around!
