About Refuge Worldwide



THE GOAL

Refuge Worldwide is a community radio station and fundraising platform working in solidarity with grassroots and non-profit organisations.

The aim of our Patreon is to grow our community, help cover some of the running costs of the new radio station, and continue our fundraising efforts.

The radio station will operate remotely from January 20th 2021, before moving into a physical studio in Neukolln, (Berlin) - COVID regulations pending.

REFUGE WORLDWIDE RADIO

The station will produce a diverse range of radio shows, media and events. Refuge Worldwide aims to combine international and local artists as well as platforming young and marginalised communities.

We feel it is more important than ever to build thriving, diverse, stable and growing cooperative communities. The new Refuge Worldwide platform will have shows from all over the musical spectrum, as well as helping to connect people to grassroots groups, share important news and to help continue our fundraising efforts.

Refuge Worldwide commits to striving for a gender balanced station, representative of minorities. The station is focused on community-building and creating space / visibility for underrepresented artists.

  • We operate a zero-tolerance policy toward racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism and xenophobia
  • Working for the benefit of the local area
  • Community focused initiatives
  • Create and allow discourse to flourish
  • Delivering a diverse and high quality music programme

Thank you for your support and we hope you enjoy being involved.

BACKGROUND STORY - REFUGE - Est. 2015

Since 2015, we have donated over 50,000 EUR to community groups from events in Berlin, Glasgow, and Bristol, from basement parties to weekend rave marathons, to street food festivals. 

Recipients of funds from the Refuge platform have included a young womxn’s centre, refugee housing support associations, a music school for marginalised persons, social equity groups, homelessness agencies, and a shelter for womxn and young persons fleeing domestic violence.

All that has been achieved so far has been done on a part-time, voluntary basis.

Due to our events being cancelled because of COVID, we decided to accelerate the creation our own online community in the form of a radio station - Refuge Worldwide.

(Refuge has donated to Schilleria on three occasions)

PATREON - REWARDS & BENEFACTORS

Thanks to your support, all funds generated by our Patreon page will split between:

COVID - CHANGING COURSE


Before COVID and ‘lockdown’ hit, Refuge had more events planned across Berlin, Bristol, and were adding dates in Manchester, Glasgow, London and elsewhere. After a really successful end to 2019, we felt positive enough to expand our events - with the intention of donating funds to more non-profit organisations at home here in Germany, and to partnering with like-minded local community groups across the UK and Europe.

Unfortunately as the story goes for everyone, we were stopped in our tracks.

On the up side, this also gave us time to pause, re-evaluate, and plan what we needed to do to keep fundraising long-term for people who really need it - especially in the new world of lockdowns and regulations. Once it is safe to do so, we will be fundraising via our events again, but until then we hope to work together with you to build this new radio and community platform.

Thank you for your support.
