Samba fever is set to hit the streets of Liverpool again this summer with Brazilica 2014, and members of the public are invited to be a part of the action by volunteering.
Now with more chances than ever to participate, volunteers will be treated to an inside look at one of the country’s most exotic and vibrant festivals, a chance to gain new and invaluable work experience.
Every year we have a great mix of people who volunteer for Brazilica. They are an essential part in making sure our carnival is a huge success – we couldn’t do it without their help.
There are lots of different roles for volunteers from helping out on the day as stewards at the carnival parade, drivers, helping to set up the carnival floats or as stage hands, runners, artist liason at the main stage site.
If you’d like to be involved over a longer term ,there are opportunities to help build the carnival floats and make costumes at Brazilica HQ, The Old Library Lodge Lane Liverpool L8 OQH. call 07517273340 or e-mail [email protected]
Joanne Jackson, a volunteer from last year’s festival said: “Volunteering at Brazilica was an amazing experience. It was the first time I had volunteered and I will definitely be doing it again. I met some brilliant people and gained lots of confidence for dealing with new situations. The parade was a highlight and I got to see some fantastic samba bands, one of which I since joined as a result of Brazilica. I am really excited for this year’s festival.”
