Voluntary Work...

…needs helping hands around the world

We have a huge demand for voluntary helpers. Because without you our project won’t work. Please consider this section as our “Jobs Section” and look if some of the below mentioned functions is for you.

In 2018 we started planning the Sophisticated Culture Foundation in small circles. In 2021 we created the legal framework. 2022 is about funding and delivering on our mission through global expansion. Become part of us and get involved!  

With the foundation established in the US and Ireland as non-profit organizations, we are working to establish local offices in all parts of the world. In Germany we set up the first trust foundation. More are to follow. The purpose is to be recognized as a charity in as many countries as possible.

For this we need the help of dedicated helpers. First, we need offices in many parts of the world.

…is clear and direct

As a Non Profit Organization we mainly support Artists who can’t make a living from music, really deserve it, but can’t afford the production costs for their art in professional recording studios. That being said, we are talking about recording music in our professional state-of-the-art world class recording studios.

This we combine with an Artist Motel where the Artists, Engineers and Producers can live and get full accommodation, including lodging, during the recording, and have a great time in a creative environment while they focus just on their music-project. A little bit similar to that, what  top class Artists get from the major labels.

All is free of charge for the artists, they have to pay nothing except their full artistic commitment. Sophisticated Culture Foundation we will not participate in their possible financial success later on. We just hope that we might kick start the one or other next aspiring artist, and that they remember back who got them on track and they freely donate some of their income to help support our mission.

We support our artists with top audio engineers and producers. Beside that we teach them in artist development, artist management and artist marketing. They can decide to try it on their own, once they are finished with their recording, or  we help them to get a good deal with a suitable record label. Also we offer a release on our own artist label. It’s up to the artist they are free!
