The studio programme of Kölnischer Kunstverein has been launched in 2003 in order to offer young artists the opportunity to work in a studio in the centre of Cologne at only a minimal cost contribution. Ten studios in the building of Kölnischer Kunstverein are awarded or prolonged on an annual basis. The programme aims to improve working and living conditions for young artists in Cologne and to support the vibrancy of the local art scene. The studio grants have been newly awarded in Spring 2015.
