Auto Italia supports and hosts Art/Work Association, an association of over four hundred early-career artists and creative workers who lead an ongoing programme of talks, screenings, seminars, reading groups, workshops and critical feedback sessions.

Conceived as an informal forum for peer exchange and community development, the project has developed into a platform for research and a supportive network that enables self-organised learning, professional development and critical dialogue for its associates. Membership is free and open to everyone. All members can propose and develop programming and are provided with production budget and management support.

Since 2013, the programme has included contributions from Oreet Ashery, Simon Bedwell, James Bridle, Shu Lea Cheang, Elaine Constantine, Cécile B Evans, Mark Fisher, Ed Fornieles, Helen Hester, Evan Ifekoya, Shama Khanna, Mark Leckey, Huw Lemmey, Nils Norman, Jenna Sutela, Christopher Kulendran Thomas and Catherine Wood amongst others.
