The Open Music Lab is a Berlin-based non-profit collective and is part of the Give Something Back To Berlin community.


We believe music creation needs safer, accessible spaces where cultural differences are celebrated. We run a space where anyone can learn how to create,
record, and share. All of our workshops and courses are free of charge for the students and offer a place for Berlin’s diverse communities to connect and create together. We are committed to including and supporting refugees, asylum seekers, people who identify as female, non-binary and LGBTQI+, people of colour, and people with disabilities.
