Support of the Arts by STRABAG SE
STRABAG SE is a European-based technology group for construction services, a leader in innovation and financial strength. Its services span all areas of the construction industry and cover the entire construction value chain. The company’s international art sponsorship aims to highlight the European dimension of STRABAG SE. Operating from its core markets Austria and Germany, the company is also active in numerous Eastern and South-Eastern European countries as well as in select markets of Western Europe and on other continents. The group is firmly committed to promoting cultural and civic causes in the form of select projects alongside its economic and environmental responsibilities.
For many years, the goal of the international art sponsorship by STRABAG SE has been to highlight the pan-European scale of the group. The successful symbiosis of art and business has long been promoted through the activities of the STRABAG Art Forum, founded in the early 90s in Carinthia. The STRABAG Artaward is an award for the promotion of art in the fields of painting and drawing for artists of up to 40 years. It has been awarded in Austria since 1994 and internationally since 2009.
Between 2015 and 2017, STRABAG Artaward International will be open for applications from Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, North Rhine-Westphalia/Germany and Switzerland.
