The negative impact of the Corona crisis is difficult to grasp at the moment, and what lies ahead shakes any self-confidence, sets feelings astray or petrifies us. But it is time to recover from the palsy, to take the instructions from those in power seriously and to stop physical contact with people from our very private environment, from work or from everyday life – to better control the further spread of the virus Covid-19, even better to stop it. To all those who already have to suspend their work as a result of the crisis, thereby having to redefine their social status, we can bring help this very moment. For this reason, I have joined the call by United We Stream. United, we are strong. United, we can help and provide support. Join us too!
Save Berlin’s Club Culture in Quarantine
Berlin Club Culture is facing the biggest challenge in its history. On Friday 13th of March 2020, the whole of Berlin ́s night life was officially shut down to prevent the spreading of the Corona virus. With this, more than 9.000 employees as well as tens of thousands of artists are without work and wages, and the many places that give Berlin part of its identity face their ruin.
Berlin’s clubs, event organizers and artists support each other in solidarity and have started a donation campaign.
All the streaming income will flow directly to a relief fund for social hardship cases which will support clubs, event organizers and artists in need due to the quarantine. Furthermore, 8 % of the income will go to the endowment fund for civil maritime rescue operations. In doing so, we are sending out an additional sign of solidarity: It‘s not only about us – many are in need of solidarity!
If we have to party alone at home, we should do it all the way! With #UnitedWeStream, clubs and artists are bringing the biggest digital club of the world into the net and into your home! Each day from a different club. Each day totally phat acts! Next to streaming live DJ sets, live music and live performances, United We Stream is also a platform for discussion rounds, presentations and movies addressing all themes concerning our club culture.
Thank you for your Support, and stay healthy!
