Welcome to globalboard.online


Togethere we're building a network for transcultural* musicians to promoters and other musicians in Lower Saxony and beyond. From Electro-Pop through Folklore to Soul - this plattform has no musical borders.

This platform is especially dedicated to musicians who experience racism and/or migration as well as asylum seeking. Create your own profile, present your work and become a visible part of a big network.

Das Global Board macht klangliche und kulturelle Vielfalt und Diversität sicht- und hörbar. Es ermöglicht ein Kennenlernen, die Wahrnehmung, Austausch und Dialog für ein konstruktives Miteinander von Menschen unterschiedlicher kultureller Herkunft. Wir als Asambura Ensemble sind dem Global Board dankbar für die Kontakte zu wunderbaren Musiker*innen und für seine inspirierenden Vermittlungsangebote.

Globalboard.online offers a digital platform for transcultural music in Lower Saxony and beyond. The offer is intended to provide a sustainable digital continuation of the Global Board project, which was carried out in Musikland Niedersachsen until 2019.

Musikland Niedersachsen set up the former Welcome Board in 2016 in cooperation with the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture as a service for incoming music to support and network refugee musicians* in Lower Saxony.

The renaming of the board to Global Board in 2018 was intended to reinforce the goal of making cultural diversity tangible as a natural part of life in the exchange between all music stakeholders in Lower Saxony. However, no further funds are currently available for personnel and project costs of the Global Board.

The Globalboard.online platform is aimed at musicians with experiences of migration, flight and/or racism. They have the opportunity to create an artistic profile with audio samples - to network with each other, as well as to be found and contacted directly by institutions and other musicians*. We want to create a space for people who are structurally marginalised and also often disadvantaged on the musical labour market. Globalboard.online aims to strengthen their visibility and increase their presence in the music world. Gloalboard.online is also a contact and information point for institutions that want to open their space for musical encounters.

Musicians who register on globalboard.online are supported in terms of content and design in shaping their artistic profile. For the first participants, a webinar entitled "DIY Booking" was held at the beginning of June. In addition to the platform, the topics of public relations, booking and self-management as a musician were also covered.
