In art, as in all things,

you can only build on

solid ground.

In the historical centre of the Hanseatic town of Salzwedel, the district of
Altmarkkreis Salzwedel maintains a half-timbered house as a centre for artists.
At the Künstler- und Stipendiatenhaus Salzwedel, artists can be individual
islands of creativity in the town centre.

At the residential centre, scholarship holders can enjoy undisturbed creative
periods of activity in a suitable environment and at the same time enrich the
region’s cultural life.
