The Studio is run by two employees (project coordinator and executive assistant) and 11 unpaid board members, who are selected by the members for three years. Artists and art professionals under age of 35 can apply for membership and the association’s board decides on the new members yearly. When a member reaches the age of 35, the board can renew their membership as a senior member.
