THE GOAL

To raise a minimum of 700.000 Euro for the #SOULIDARITY fund.
To provide substantial relief to musicians, most of whom are not getting any support from their governments.
To show solidarity for touring musicians living in Africa and to make sure that they can continue to make music.
To support the over 188 musicians who didn't earn any money since March 2020.

THE MOVEMENT

#SOULIDARITY

#SOULIDARITY is an initiative by START WITH CULTURE, a non-profit organization based in Germany. Over 188 musicians from around 40 bands have applied for the fund. The goal is to raise a minimum of 700.000 Euros together and to create a relief income to sustain the affected African musicians for the upcoming months. The #SOULIDARITY relief fund gives all eligible applicants a one-time relief payment. The artists who will be selected for the fund will actively create content for the campaign and tell us their personal stories throughout the crisis and how it affects them and their countries. Learn about the bands and watch their stories here.

Thank you for your support!
