Berlin Clubs Initiate Global Fundraising Campaign.
Berlin's world famous club culture faces the greatest challenge in its history due to COVID-19, according to the Berlin Club Commission. The entire Berlin nightlife was officially shut down on Friday 13th March in order to prevent the spread of the corona virus. More than 9,000 employees and tens of thousands of artists are suddenly without employment with many venues and businesses on the brink of financial ruin. In response, Berlin clubs, promoters and artists have started the world's largest digital club, streaming live online every night from a different club or venue in the city.
In addition to live broadcast of DJ sets, live music and performances, the platform will also offer talks, lectures and films on club culture topics.
Visitors to the site are encouraged to donate voluntarily and thus become part of the “virtual club”. The income from the streams goes to a fundraising pool for social hardship cases, which can be used to support clubs and artists suffering from the coronavirus quarantine.
In addition, 8% of the proceeds go to the “Foundation Fund for Civil Sea Rescue”, to aid their work in the Mediterranean.
#UnitedWeStream is an initiative of the Berlin Club Commission and the Reclaim Club Culture Network.
