We believe that the best communities are hyper collaborative and inclusive.

Through our relationships with local artists, small businesses, musicians and nonprofits and cultural institutions, we are committed to amplifying voices and varying perspectives to foster shared value. Since 2011, Isenberg Projects has produced hundreds of projects, pushing over 1 million dollars into the hands of the local creative economy.


Isenberg Projects was founded in 2011 and in early 2020 was officially certified as a women owned business in the State of Massachusetts. We are an integrated team of community strategists, creatives, tastemakers, deal makers, producers and artists – all obsessed with culture and driven by insatiable curiosity.

Founded in 2012, Emily has built Isenberg Projects into one of the northeast’s go-to firms for fresh and exciting pop-up activations, and in the process has become one of the most respected voices on thinking outside the box in real estate and in short term retail as a leader in creating distinction in the market.
