Tag der Clubkultur (Day of Club Culture) honors Berlin clubs & collectives

The 3rd of October 2020 is not only the day of German Unity, but also the Tag der Clubkultur (Day of Club Culture) in Berlin! On this day a decisive life signal is to be set in these existence-threatened times. Because especially clubs and venues suffer massively from the Corona crisis. On the initiative of Senator for Culture Klaus Lederer, forty clubs and collectives are each awarded €10,000 by a board of trustees for their years to decades of commitment to the Berlin club culture.

The showcase festival gives all awarded clubs and collectives the chance to present themselves and to draw attention to the diversity and liveliness of Berlin’s club culture. Of course, a comprehensive hygiene and security concept has been developed and the events take place mainly in the outdoor areas or on external open spaces.

Applications, Board of Trustees, Awards

To participate in the Tag der Clubkultur, clubs and collectives had to apply for the event. Decisive criteria were, above all, previous involvement in the Berlin club culture, social commitment and diversity aspects. In addition, a comprehensive showcase concept including a hygiene concept had to be submitted, representing the diversity and importance of the club or collective. Furthermore, residencies and local artists should be integrated into the program.
The Board of Trustees then selected forty clubs and collectives to receive the award. The basis for the decision was provided by points such as awareness or inclusion concepts, political commitment, focus on ecological or social sustainability, outstanding program work or design, community work, promotion of young talent, etc.

Board of Trustees:
– DJ IPEK aka Ipek Ipekçioğlu (DJ, producer, queer activist)
– Lewann “Lu” Ghebremariam (Organizer of the queer feminist party BRENN, activist)
– Maureen “Mo” Mutheu (Host, event curator, music and cultural consultant)
– Markus Lindner aka Delfonic (DJ, producer, Label boss and label manager)
– Sanni Est (Trans*feminist artist, curator, host and speaker)
