Open Music Lab launches Open Culture Lab, a new project for diversity in electronic music, kicking off July 20th with Maayan Nidam
The Open Music Lab is a Berlin-based, space and platform that works as part of the Give Something Back To Berlin (GSBTB) community, a non-profit organization that aims to promote cultural and social projects in the German capital. Their new venture, the Open Culture Lab, is a collaborative project with renowned DJ and producer Maayan Nidam, that further celebrates musical diversity in electronic music.
The Open Culture Lab event series will kick off on Monday, July 20th as part of a series of open-air events promoting a wide variety of musical journeys and cultures. The first event will focus on African musical heritage and culture. The day will start with a panel discussion by Tracy Bakala (Yoyaku’s senior booking agent and partner) Mista Wallizz from (Freak de l’Afrique), and DJ Ukai Ndame, as they will discuss topics around community organization and the heritage of African music. Floyd Lavine (artist and producer from the RISE crew), will host music production workshop and afterwards, attendees will be able to hang out with event hosts, enjoy some food and listen to music by DJ Dede.
Through the experiences of musicians, producers, activists and members of the music industry the Open Culture Lab will bring different key players from the scene together while also promoting diversity and cultural exchange. This holistic approach is distinctive as it mixes cultural and social aspects together for the fostering of creativity and community. The Open Culture Lab is a remarkable initiative, and while we face troubling times, one thing is certain, unity and solidarity are key to continue growing and reinventing the music and arts industry, now even more so than ever.
