On April 8, 2024, Creative Malden was presented with a sponsorship check by East Cambridge Savings Bank. Creative Malden, which celebrated its second anniversary in March, focuses on reestablishing funding for artists in the Malden community. Partnering with local artists, musicians, poets and more, Creative Malden hosts events to celebrate the arts, like the upcoming event Artists Take the Streets, which is happening on June 22. Artists Take the Streets will take place on Pleasant Street in Malden Center, featuring a captivating array of talent, with fun for all ages. Running from 12–4 p.m., the event is set to include the music of musicians Maddie Lam and Santon, as well as art demonstrations from Grace Julian Murthy, Ellen Wallace, Elizabeth Scorsello, Ella Bessmer and Abby Kinsel.

In recognition of these efforts, the generous team at East Cambridge Savings Bank granted Creative Malden a $1,000 check to support the upcoming events. Creative Malden President Sandy Felder, alongside Creative Malden Treasurer Diana Jeong, who was named the 2022 Commonwealth Heroine by the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women (MCSW), met with East Cambridge Savings Bank Assistant Vice President Fiona Nattabi. Nattabi presented Felder and Jeong with the sponsorship check.

Regarding Creative Malden, Jeong stated, “I am proud to be part of Creative Malden for its fellowship and support of Malden’s local artists. A strong commitment to our local cultural activities only makes Malden a better community.”

Nattabi added, “Art is the mirror of the community. Through art one can see the values, culture and identity of a community.”

East Cambridge Savings Bank’s sponsorship solidifies the institution not only as a pillar of the community, but as a patron of the arts.
