Project development start-up workshop

For female artists within the framework of ARTWORKS

2002 - 2004

ARTWORKS - Artistic services for the 3rd sector

Since July 2003 FIFTITU% has been actively working on the EQUAL project ARTWORKS - Artistic Services for the 3rd Sector. The task of FIFTITU% is to organize a start-up workshop for female artists together with the Institute for Cultural Concepts (Vienna).

Women Founders' Workshop
over 100 female artists have applied to take part in the ARTWORKS start-up workshop (January - October 2004). In a ten-month training program with seminars, individual coaching and mentoring, 25 women from different art disciplines will be supported in the development of artistic services and thus the step into self-employment. The aim is to open up new sources of income and fields of work for the participants in cooperation with organizations from the third sector, such as schools, social and charitable institutions
