In 2017, the working group Awareness & Diversity was founded within the Clubcommission to address how to create safer and more diverse environments within the club and festival culture. The aim of a diverse and discrimination-sensitive club culture is very demanding and can only work through continuous work on the topic and an open, constructive dialogue with all participants. This is why the Clubcommission launched the Awareness Akademie in 2020, funded by the Musicboard Berlin. Today, it represents the Awareness & Diversity department of the Clubcommission, which now implements a wide range of project activities, formats and cooperations.
