Musicboard-Berlin > Awareness > Expert Advice Centres & Guides


Counselling, support and sensitivity training for an accessible society and culture is offered by a large number of associations and initiatives in Berlin and throughout Germany. Due to the complexity of the topics and perspectives, Musicboard presents here a selection of possible specialist counselling centres, guidelines and practical aids for inclusion and diversity work, compiled by experts in their own fields. This list is not exhaustive, and we are always happy to receive any additions or suggestions. Diversity Arts Culture, a design and consultation office for diversity development in the cultural sector, also provides a comprehensive overview for Berlin’s cultural workers.

Sustainable Event Management

A greener Fête de la Musique

The Fête de la Musique committed itself to being a pioneer in the implementation of local, national and international climate goals. The result of this »Greener Fête« programme is, among other things, a guide (in German) for event managers showing that, when it comes to Fête de la Musique, climate protection and fun are not mutually exclusive.
Accessible Events

K Produktion

The sooner that accessibility is included in event planning, the easier it is to implement. Together with the Bundeskompetenzzentrum Barriererefreheit (›Federal Centre of Competence for Barrier-Free Accessibility‹), K Produktion provides event organisers with a handout and checklist (in German) for accessible events.
Language & Diversity

Diversity Arts Culture

Not all terms used in diversity development are simple or familiar to everyone. Diversity-oriented language is dynamic. It introduces new words while others are questioned and reinterpreted. The dictionary of Diversity Arts Culture, the Berlin project office for diversity development, tries to offer orientation in the context of diversity-oriented language use.
