Arnaudville, LA – After 12 years of leading the NUNU collective, and with much thought and consideration, George Marks has stepped down as executive director. During Marks tenure as executive director, NUNU Arts and Culture Collective proved itself to be an influential regional leader in the practices of Creative Placemaking.

“I am beyond confident that with new energy, NUNU Arts and Culture Collective will thrive in new and unique ways. That being said, I will continue to volunteer my time, but just in a different capacity. My new found time will allow me to focus more on my career as a visual artist. And I can’t think of a better, more rounded person to lead the organization than Peg Ramier. I have come to know her and her ability to navigate the multiplicity of NUNU, and I am grateful that the NUNU collective Board of Directors agrees.”

Peg Ramier, a NUNU collective member and Deux Bayous potter, comes to NUNU collective as a founder of the Frozard Cultural District in the Corridor des Arts. Her skill as a humanist and dedicated volunteer was quickly made evident during these past few years. Ramier’s background is varied with experience renovating homes, sitting on several boards, and as a professional architect and realtor.

She and her husband, Brian Erberich, moved to south Louisiana from southern California in 2015 to enjoy time with her parents. She was pleasantly surprised by the depth of culture she found in her mother’s home community of Prairie Bosse within the greater Arnaudville area. Ramier is pleased to call Acadiana home. She plans to continue to share and grow alongside all the wonderful locals, old and new that she has met since her arrival and to help support and further NUNU collective’s continued growth and innovation.
