Arts Trail 8 - The team


The Saltaire Arts Trail is organised each year by Saltaire Inspired, a not-for-profit organisation run almost entirely by volunteers, and financially and practically supported by sponsors, local people, business organisations and other local agencies.  Over the three day event, there are many more volunteers helping and supporting, which is especially important given the number of venues involved and the fact that many of them are local residents' own homes.

I just happened to be going into the Victoria Hall when a (presumably professional) photographer was organising a photo shoot on the steps.  I believe these smiley people are the core team of event organisers.  Kudos to them!  They did a very good job.

  1. I'm often wondering what we would do without all those people, the Volunteers, who help to do such great and so many things in our modern societies.. Nice tribute!

  7. Hi, I was the photographer and, yes, these guys did a great job! It was a pleasure photographing the event over three days with so much fantastic art and exhibitions on show. A great buzz for everyone and would not have happened unless it was for the volunteers!
