Hip-hop historian DJ Amir shares some dancefloor heat.
We have launched a GoFundMe for the new studio
We have just received the wonderful opportunity to take over a fantastic new space in Neukölln, where we can build a real studio for the community.
To help us start building the studio as quickly as possible, we are hoping to raise 10,000 EUR via a GoFundMe page.
Refuge Worldwide is a new radio station and platform in Berlin, amplifying the people, music and issues that we care about.
It is more important than ever to make sure we build thriving, independent and growing cooperative communities. The new Refuge Worldwide studio will not only be a community space but it will offer a platform to artists, DJs, community leaders, activists and journalists to showcase their work, as well as helping to connect people with grassroots organisations.
Why do we need the studio space?
- A physical studio will allow us to be online more days and for longer hours, offering additional space for programming
- We want to provide a safe and welcoming space for the community to practice and train on professional equipment
- We plan to begin producing our own content covering the issues important to us and our online community, including human rights, migration and sustainability.
- To have a place for hosting events and community workshops, including mentorship classes from our residents.
The studio will be open, at no cost, to youth and community groups, marginalised persons, and persons who do not have access to a professional audio environment. We will have a booking system to enable training, practicing and/or an introduction to a professional DJ booth and radio studio. Slots/time can be used for recording pilot episodes, getting to know industry standard equipment like turntables and DJ mixers, or just for practicing voice overs and mixes.
