#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 here.
The Soulidarity fund will be distributed to the selected musicians through their managers or agencies. The following payment structure is based on how many shows they had lost. For approx. 200 musicians we need to collect around 700.000 EUR. If we raise less payments will be made in proportion of how many participants, shows and money is collected. If we raise more we will reach out to more musicians who are in need of urgent support.
