Künstler- und Stipendiatenhaus des Altmarkkreises Salzwedel


tender for a stay in the artist and scholarship holder house Salzwedel for artists in 2023

In the historic centre of the Hanseatic town of Salzwedel, the district of Altmarkkreis Salzwedel maintains a listed half-timbered house as an internationally-focused residence for artists. Thanks to its idyllic and serene setting, artists from the fields of visual arts, literature and music/composition enjoy ideal working and living conditions while at the residence. The building also features an area in which events and small exhibitions can be held.

The call for applications is aimed at professional, particularly gifted and primarily younger artists from the fields of visual arts, literature and music/composition who have already received public recognition for their work and are still developing as artists. Applications from students will not be accepted.

Note: Applications from artists from Saxony-Anhalt are expressly encouraged, but not a requirement. Funding for other artists is possible if their outstanding artistic work is of particular interest to the state or if a connection to Saxony-Anhalt can be established.

The State Chancellery and Ministry of Culture sponsor the three-month residencies at the Künstler- und Stipendiatenhaus Salzwedel with scholarships to the amount of €1000 per month. Scholarship recipients will incur costs only for the cost of the telephone and internet connection.
