The Theaterfestival Boulevard team works year-round on the organisation of the festival and other activities of Bosse Nova Foundation, such as Kunstbende Noord-Brabant. We believe that art plays an indispensable role in society, and based on that conviction, we work together with partners from various social domains. We highlight spearheads such as talent development and internationalisation from different perspectives, including in European collaborative projects. We work with other organisations, festivals, and (amateur) initiatives from Pand 18, a former school in the city centre. Broedplaats 's-Hertogenbosch is also active here, in which we collaborate with colleagues from Festival Cement and Theater Artemis in the context of Plan Talent Development Brabant. Our small group of permanent employees is expanded every year with returning temporary employees, interns, and indispensable volunteers.

Policies and manners of conduct

Theaterfestival Boulevard stands for a corporate culture in which everyone can work pleasantly and safely and in which abuses and irregularities are prevented. In addition, we offer a reporting procedure in case that does not appear to be the case.

A memorandum has been drawn up in consultation with Van Oss and partners to increase integrity awareness where necessary, provide insight into options and procedures to guarantee safety within our organisation, and encourage employees to hold each other accountable for non-integrity undesirable behaviour. This note is available to employees and volunteers of the festival. Integrity issues and unwanted behaviour can be reported to the managing director or discussed informally and confidentially with our confidential adviser, Ms Ans Buys.

If there is a suspicion of abuse, volunteers report to volunteer coordinator Hanna van Dis. If there is a suspicion that the volunteer coordinator is involved in the abuse, this can be reported to the director-administrator or the confidential adviser. In this way, we want to offer a pleasant and safe working environment for our employees, artists, and volunteers.

Team Boulevard

In the spring and summer, we are at full strength - then the volunteers, freelancers, and trainees are also present. We are happy to introduce them to you, everyone included.
