Is a Studio program for alumni of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Art practice, networking, public: ArtStart_Studio 2019 offers a support structure for alumni of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, who are looking for a studio space for their artistic practice.

The profession as an artist is supported for 10-15 graduates of the Academy with a nearly one-year studio program: in addition to the common use of a 420m2 open studio space in the creative cluster "Traktorfabrik" (Vienna 21st District, Louis-Häfliger-Gasse 12) participate the artists in a workshop program that accompanies the step into the artistic independence. In addition, the location of the former “Traktorfabrik”, in which numerous artists and creatives are already located with their studios and workshops, offers the opportunity for exchange: contacts can be established and networks expanded. In November 2019, the artistic works developed during the studio program will be presented to a broader public as part of the Vienna Art Week.
