Refuge Worldwide launch fundraiser to build community studio in Berlin

Following their shift from fundraising platform to international broadcasters, Refuge Worldwide set their sights on building a new studio and community space in Berlin by launching a GoFundMe campaign to raise 10,000 EUR.

Located on Weserstraße in Neukölln, the studio will allow Refuge Worldwide to broadcast more often, for longer hours and allow extended programming. It aims to provide a safe and welcoming space for the local community to practice and train using professional equipment and will also host workshops and mentorship classes.

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. Refuge 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.

Current residents include; Kate Miller, Resom, Monty Luke, Stem, Cromby, Sally C, Telephones, Double Dancer, Steve Bicknell, Nathalie Capello, Golden Medusa, Gramrcy, Alison Swing, DJ Autumn (Banoffee Pies), Jessica, Nazanin Noori, AfroOankali, Angel D’lite, Yuko Asuanuma, Tom & Finn Johannsen (Paloma) Friendly Fires’ Jack Savidge, Mother from Rubadub, and Hardwax’s Jesse Gravina with Johanna Wenzel.

All donations are welcome, bonus gifts include a free download of the first Refuge Worldwide compilation album, a plaque in the toilets, totes and the Refuge Worldwide scarf (pictured in gallery above).
