The Styrian Government is calling for applications for artist scholarships under the title "Kunstraum Steiermark". Applicants should preferably be under 35 years old. The scholarships are granted for the set-up and long-term establishment of workspaces and studios in Styria to facilitate the development of artistic projects and to make it easier for young artists to gain a foothold in the professional arts and culture scene.
Fifteen artists or artist collectives are granted a monthly allowance of EUR 600 for a period of two years (2023/2024).
Representatives of all disciplines of art and culture who would like to work in Styria and establish a studio here are eligible to apply. The scholarship, which covers the expenses of a suitable space for two years, wants to support artists, make production conditions easier for them and help them to reach professionalisation.
In awarding the scholarship, the Styrian Government follows the recommendations of a jury of experts.
