Team technique & logistics
In the last weeks before the festival everywhere in and around Nijmegen are signs and banners to announce our event. During the weekend there are market stalls, there are stages (often with light and sound) and the streets are dressed recognizable and cozy. Obviously afterwards everything must be cleared again. All this is, almost invisible, provided by the team technique & logistics.
Time investment: In consultation. Before, during and after the festival.

Team children's activities
On Sunday, September 3rd, we have children’s activities at Plein 1944. For this we need some helpers. Tasks include: guidance on the bouncy castle, face painting, crafts help. The team also takes care for building and cleaning up the ‘children’s corner’.
Time investment: On Sunday, September 3rd from about 11:00 am to about 6:00 pm.

Team artists guidance
Hundreds of musicians and dancers travel to Nijmegen, from the Netherlands and abroad. These people obviously do not know the city centre, but they must be at the right time at the right place. The team artists guidance not only ensures that all acts play as scheduled, but also helps in finding (for example) a nice (dining) bar for the group.
Time investment: On Sunday, September 3rd from about 11:00 am to about 6:00 pm.

Team parade
The samba parade sounds simpler then it is. Because if the groups walk too close to each other than they suffer from each other’s music. However, if they are too far apart then the public must wait too long for the next group. It is also important that the entire parade passes the different locations at the appropriate times, so that the rest of the program will not be disturbed. The team parade takes care of all this.
Time investment: On Sunday, September 3rd from about 4:00 pm to about 6:00 pm.
