ATB Ambassadors

ATB Ambassadors collaborate to enhance the visibility of Arts Transcending Borders artists and programming among fellow students and the larger community. They are a group of enthusiastic and friendly Holy Cross students who have an interest in the arts that they want to share. In their roles as Ambassadors, these students gain hands-on experience in arts administration: from event planning and production, to interacting with guest artists on campus. Our Ambassadors truly are an essential part of our team.

"ATB is important for Holy Cross because it acts as a space to bring together students, faculty, and community members from different backgrounds to understand a shared experience. As college students in Worcester, MA, ATB plays an important role in facilitating opportunities to share global experiences and perspectives in a meaningful way."

"ATB is one of the most unique parts of Holy Cross because it brings students, faculty, the community, and artists from around the world together. It allows anyone to participate in the arts and find joy, inspiration, and hope from it. From music to visual art to dance to technology, ATB artists are impressive and one-of-a-kind, and engaging with ATB enables the Holy Cross community to get to know these talented and passionate artists."
