Behind the Scenes

The Behind the Scenes charity provides financial support to entertainment technology industry professionals who are seriously ill or injured or to their surviving family members. Grants are tailored to each individual and uses can include basic living costs, medical related expenses, transportation, and funeral expenses. Behind the Scenes brings help and hope in times of great need.

Due to the Corona pandemic, several hundred thousand events have been canceled throughout Germany so far. As a result, freelancers, solo self-employed and micro-enterprises in the cultural sector have had to cope with massive losses of revenue. Freelance stage and sound technicians, lighting technicians, stage hands and event assistants are among the hardest hit and at the same time an indispensable part of our cultural infrastructure. They need fast, unbureaucratic support and solidarity now.
