Ways to Participate
"Imagining North Adams" is an open festival of exhibits and events. There is no charge to participate. We offer a variety of ways that you can join us, whether you're just curious or you're interested in helping to make the festival happen.
Our downtown gallery is easy to find and will be open throughout the festival! Get hours and directions.
Volunteer to staff a gallery or event
Have a few hours to donate? We would be glad to hear from you. No special knowledge is required - just your interest. Contact our Associate Gallery Manager.
Write a briefing
Tell the world about a corner of the city that you would like to see improved. By making these wishes public, we can help connect you with others who share your vision. With enough momentum, we might even be able to recruit experienced placemakers who can coach you in developing an action plan to bring your vision to life.

The festival's Project Lodge offers the opportunity for individuals and groups to organize projects and events that are related to the festival's theme. Read more about the Project Lodge and contact our Curator.
