Who We are

The idea for LIFE ACT was sparked in April 2017 in response to a critical United Nations report at the time. The (then) UN emergency aid coordinator, Stephen O’Brien, addressed the world community with some alarming facts: some 20 million people in East Africa are affected by starvation, particularly in Southern Sudan, Yemen, Somalia and Nigeria. We are living through one of the most serious humanitarian crises since 1945, triggered by conflicts, wars and severe drought. Several billion dollars are needed to combat this, but the problem exists, not only because of a lack of financial support.

Our Approach

The mission to make the world a little better is what unites us. For an individual, the sheer scale of such crises and conflicts can be overwhelming at best, many asking themselves “What can I do on my own?”

That is why we founded LIFE ACT. A Do-it-Yourself or Better-Together-Network of creative, visionary people from music, art, culture and media. We are united not only by a mission, but also a shared vision.

LET’S BE HONEST

How effective is it really, to simply donate money to a foreign donation account? Do you really feel like you can make a difference? In our experience, not really.

WE DO NOT ASK FOR MONEY

We don’t want money. Instead, we ask for superpower. What can you do particularly well and what can you contribute? Who in your network is an interesting contact or a multiplier of powerful ideas?

BECAUSE WE UNDERSTAND

When we work hand in hand, we achieve more. When everyone can actively participate and shape, the feeling of having really changed something is suddenly noticeable. This feeling is our motivation.

In 2017 we, music producer Julian Ganzer and journalist Laura Lewandowski, laid the foundation for top-class events within Berlin’s art and culture scene, with the mission to create awareness for the suppressed crises on this planet and to give back a voice to the unheard. The first LIFE ACT Electronic Music festival took place in 2017. In February, we became an official association whose members include people from the media, music, art, culture scene.
