Refuge was started as a fundraising platform working in solidarity with grassroots and non-profit organisations. In January 2021 we launched Refuge Worldwide, a new radio station to amplify the music and issues that we care about, broadcasting weekly from Weserstraße 166, 12045 Berlin Neukölln.
Since 2015, among others, we have worked with a young women’s centre, refugee housing support associations, a music school for marginalised persons, social equity groups, homelessness agencies, and a shelter for women and young persons fleeing domestic violence.
The station team produce a diverse range of radio shows, training courses, media and live events. Refuge Worldwide combines international and local artists, as well as platforming newcomers and persons from marginalised communities.

We are really excited to present a broad range of shows ranging from 100% music-focused programmes, to some that incorporate interviews and debate, to programmes completely dedicated to discussion.
The music policy is diverse, from hip-hop to house, new wave to northern soul, reggae to R&B, ambient to IDM. All of our hosts have freedom to do what they like with their shows and programme structure.
