IMAGES Festival Committee & Volunteers

IMAGES: A Festival of the Arts’ volunteers are the backbone of its operation, and indeed, of our community. Over 150 strong, they bring a great enthusiasm to IMAGES that makes the event so welcoming to artists, visitors, and locals. They bring their unique talents and interests, creating impressions that are not soon forgotten.

“If you have never been involved with putting on an event like IMAGES, you cannot imagine the number of people required to make it work.  The volunteer effort for IMAGES begins a full year before the festival, they are integral to what we do,” says Nancy Lowden Norman, Atlantic Center for the Arts Executive Director . “One of their greatest contributions is their enthusiasm. They approach every job with joy, whether serving breakfast to artists or assisting with parking; and the participating IMAGES artists comment on it as a highlight of the festival. We are very grateful for our hard-working and friendly volunteers and for our dedicated IMAGES committee members.
