Our initiative to support a group greatly affected by COVID-19: Tech4Artists

The COVID-19 pandemic hits hard on the group of people filling the Berlin club scene with life and music – artists. Almost all DJs are faced with cancelled bookings for the coming months due to closure of all clubs. Many have no perspective of income in the next months.

As a Berlin based company – and with some of us being close to artists ourselves – we see it as our duty to support artists find other ways of income in these testing times.

With this initiative our goal is to connect artists affected by this with local companies for projects or short-term / part-time engagements.
