Hilfe / допомогти - Музиканти допомагають музикантам / Musicians help musicians
Вам потрібне житло, порада та підтримка? Зал для репетицій? Сховище для зберігання інструментів? Landesmusikrat Berlin є головною організацією музичних установ та асоціацій Берліна. Разом з іншими культурними асоціаціями ми зібрали багато пропозицій допомоги від представників сфери культури.

Do you need accommodation, advice and support? A practice room? A storage facility for instruments? The Landesmusikrat Berlin is the umbrella organization of music institutions and associations in Berlin. Together with other cultural associations, we have collected many offers of help from the cultural scene. Musicians seeking help from refugees can contact us directly at our email address email@example.com.
Would you like to offer help?
The Landesmusikrat Berlin received many offers of help after the demonstration. Together with other associations, we want to collect these offers and mediate them in a targeted manner via the associations.
Here you will find a query form (in German) that should make this work easier for us. If it is possible for you to offer help, you can register there.
The Landesmusikrat Berlin recommends that monetary donations be made to the Ukraine emergency aid of the German Red Cross (IBAN: DE63 3702 0500 0005 0233 07, BIC: BFSWDE33XXX).
Information about the Music Job Market in Berlin - Personal Advice and Accompaniment
Aim of the Project
The aim of the project „ Information about the Music Job Market in Berlin - Personal Advice and Accompaniment“ is to make the network of the State Music Council available to musicians who were forced to leave their home countries for political reasons.
The project is supported with funding from the Senate Department for Culture and Europe’s program Weltoffenes Berlin (cosmopolitan Berlin).
For newly-arriving musicians, it is difficult to maintain an overview of the Berlin job market in the field of music. Often, they lack information on minimum requirements in terms of formal degrees and artistic qualifications, entry opportunities in the field of music, education structures, applying for funding, the social security system for artists or information on starting up a business. In most cases, experiences they made in their home countries are not applicable. They also face general problems such as applying for a work permit or insurance issues.
The website of the State Music Council in Berlin will be expanded by a multilingual interactive map representing the musical landscape in Berlin with an overview of important locations such as music institutions, music industries, music schools and counseling services.
Important information on starting a career or a business in the field of music, seminars, events and other useful information for professional musicians will also be presented on the map.
Additionally, the State Music Council offers multilingual advice and personal accompaniment to general and specialized counseling facilities. The consultation service is provided in Arabic, German, and English. Appointments can be requested and arranged by email.
The offer is complemented by translations services, both orally and in writing, for members of the Music Council and cooperation partners for specific offers.
