Künstlerhäuser Worpswede is a place for communal encounters and individual concentration. A place for co-creation and self-efficacy. Martin Kausche founded the complex of five studios in 1971. The studios provide space to work and to live on the edge of the artist village Worpswede, close to Bremen. The state of Lower Saxony, the district of Osterholz and the community of Worpswede all support the association with other partners. We promote interdisciplinary and international art production in the Martin-Kausche-Ateliers.
Artists from Lower Saxony can apply for the annual scholarship from Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture and spend a certain period of time working in Worpswede. More information about this and the application process can be found at:
We are building a network of international academies to cooperate with. If you are interested in studios for groups to work in please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org. We also host professional artists who are able to pay for the lenght of their stay based on our availability.

In general German Kunstvereine provide new platform for innovative artistic expression, art production and foster civic participation in cultural activities.
