TIES is a Berlin-based event series by Borshch magazine’s Mariana Berezovska and TYME. It celebrates the resilience of the city’s music communities and diasporas affected by political oppression, war, and inequality through music performances and workshops. TIES underscores Berlin’s legacy as a refuge for artists, aiming to create cultural bridges between musicians and cultural activists from diverse backgrounds. The events at Refuge Worldwide, Kantine am Berghain , and Arkoada in October and December include artists like Alie, CEM, Nídia, and ABADIR, among many others.
