Become a comrade

A coope­ra­ti­ve means run­ning a busi­ness tog­e­ther. By buy­ing at least one share in a coope­ra­ti­ve, you beco­me a »sup­port­ing mem­ber« of krakelee eG i. G. As a com­ra­de, you are part of a coll­ec­tively run com­pa­ny and enable the rea­liza­ti­on of the krakelee club. At least once a year the­re will also be a par­ty just for »sup­port­ing comrades«.

Why support krakelee? 

1. Colo­gne needs clubs: Colo­gne’s club cul­tu­re has been thin­ned out mas­si­ve­ly in recent years and with it the venues of the inde­pen­dent sce­ne. We want to make a state­ment against the sell-out of crea­ti­ve free spaces.

2. The club sce­ne needs to evol­ve: We hope to see vibrant repre­sen­ta­ti­ons of women*, LGBTIQ* and BIPoC on the dance­f­lo­or and turntables. 

3. Clubs are coun­ter spaces: through clubs you can expe­ri­ence soli­da­ri­ty and tog­e­ther­ness regard­less of social cons­traints. We want ever­yo­ne to have a chan­ce to be a part of this.

4. A coope­ra­ti­ve club: A club is a com­mu­ni­ty whe­re ever­yo­ne is respon­si­ble for each other’s well-being through their actions, which is simi­lar to our coope­ra­ti­ve approach. We’­re start­ing a com­pa­ny tha­t’s coll­ec­tively run, with trans­pa­rent decis­i­on-making and flat hier­ar­chies. In co-ope­ra­ti­ves, which are seen as a very ste­ady legal struc­tu­re, we com­bi­ne finan­cial effi­ci­en­cy with social accoun­ta­bi­li­ty and action based on soli­da­ri­ty. As a co-ope­ra­ti­ve, we aim to demons­tra­te that working col­la­bo­ra­tively rather than just for pro­fits is achievable.

5. And of cour­se: dancing and good music! Sure, we love good music and wild raves. We pro­vi­de extra­or­di­na­ry par­ties, a diver­se line-up and exci­ting musi­cal perspectives.

By the way, until the club beco­mes a rea­li­ty, we our­sel­ves are working com­ple­te­ly unpaid.
