"Welcome Board" is an initiative of the Musikland Niedersachsen gGmbH and the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture.
It supports music makers who had to flee their home country or immigrated to Germany. It is intended to create a space for encounters that promote openness to people from other countries and their music, and enable participation in social life and integration. "Welcome Board" has set itself the goal to support on a par the different music cultures with their respective characteristics .
Also central to the institution are the questions of which forms of music have come to Lower Saxony, who plays and listens to them, and what instruments they use to implement them.
In addition, the advice and networking of music creators is an important field of work of the "Welcome Board" - even in practical matters such as the search for rehearsal opportunities or instruments.
Also clubs and institutions are addressed as to whether they want to integrate refugee music creators in their work or offer them a stage. As a service and coordination office, institutions, associations and, of course, refugees can contact the "Welcome Board".
