MEETUP Berlin is a growing community addressing female-identifying, non-binary and inter* artists including the LBTQ community, in the fields of music and arts in Berlin. We embrace diversity of age, class, cultural identity and (dis)abilities, and uphold an evolving intersectionality, honoring the individual. We are aware of the fact that creating a safe space is a continuous learning process. We meet once a month to present various projects, events and initiatives, discuss music related topics, organize workshops, exchange creative ideas and showcase upcoming DJs and musicians. MEETUP Berlin provides an opportunity to meet likeminded individuals for collaborating on projects and share ideas.
The MEETUP Berlin sessions consists of two major parts:
1) Discussion and learning in an LBTQI friendly environment (which means CIS men are not addressed)
2) Showcasing the before mentioned groups of artists (this part is open to everyone).
Our major goals are exchange, participation, networking and supporting diversity. The event starts with an introduction of every participant and guest. This creates a relaxed and open-minded environment for people to find common ground and also gives an overview of everyone’s focus and mutual interests. During the discussion and learning part, we present and cover topics of interest related to music and art, including but not limited to critical discourse on recent developments, gender issues in music & art, music promotion, cultural work, art & music research, music journalism, event organization, music technology etc.
We bring together newcomers and professionals, who are related to different fields in art, music and technology. We have music production editions where guests can share production techniques and offer tips and advice on creative processes, specific topics such as vocal processing, beat production and DJing.
During the music part of our event, we provide a platform for artists to play live, DJ, VJ or present art works. Female-identifying, trans* and inter* artists or mixed groups (at least 50/50), whether aspiring or professional, are welcome to participate by performing, DJing and VJing - bringing and sharing their own works or music by other artists, discussing and proposing ideas for projects and events.
