AIR Antwerpen


International development platform for young artists

STRT Kit is an international platform annually supporting five visual artists upto thirty years old of age, who are working and or living in the city of Antwerp.

During one year STRT Kit provides a collective work - and presentation space, organizes studio visits with artists and curators from Belgium and beyond, an intensive studytour abroad and sets up meetings with all residents of AIR Antwerpen. The journey ends with a group exhibition and publication in Extra City Kunsthal in Antwerp.

STRT Kit is a project of non-profit organisation Studio Start, brought to life in 2014 with the financial support of the city of Antwerp and in collaboration with Extra City Kunsthal and AIR Antwerpen. With the initiation of the START Projects, Studio Start is especially focusing on the artistic practice of young artists. The main goal of Studio Start is to provide affordable workspaces for artists and creative entrepeneurs.
