The Artists' and Fellows' House in Salzwedel thrives on the partnership between the Altmarkkreis Salzwedel and the state of Saxony-Anhalt. It has unique positional characteristics for a "lighthouse effect" as a site of artistic and cultural creation in the state of Saxony-Anhalt.

These include:
- An important house of artists in the state of Saxony-Anhalt with international appeal
- The only house of scholarship holders in the state of Saxony-Anhalt
- High-quality and sought-after work scholarships
portfolio of renowned artists
-Unique interdisciplinary orientation (visual arts, writing, music)

Since 1997, over 100 scholarship holders have been given the opportunity to work here on a secure financial basis. The state awards its scholarships on its own authority through the Art Advisory Council, the Literature Council and the Music Council of the state, thus also ensuring excellence. The scholarship holders come and have come from Saxony-Anhalt, from other federal states and from all over the world (USA, Great Britain, China, Korea, India, Brazil, France, Taiwan, Austria).

For the Altmarkkreis Salzwedel, the artists' and scholarship holders' house has become a permanent fixture and a figurehead.
