The traditional Künstlerhaus Lukas is a place for artistic work and international encounters. It supports professional artists in the fields of visual arts, literature, dance, composition and curators by awarding residency grants.
In 1894, the Künstlerhaus Lukas was built by the painter Paul Müller-Kaempff, the founder of the artists' colony Ahrenshoop, as a boarding and studio house for his painting students and named after the patron saint of painters St. Lucas.
Today the house is a working place for artists from all over Germany and many countries of Northern Europe. During work stays supported by a scholarship, they can dedicate themselves to their own works or initiate joint projects.
Regularly on the last Sunday of the month the scholarship holders of the Künstlerhaus Lukas invite to an open day. There are studio talks, small readings and other events. In addition, the house presents special events for some of the annual cultural highlights of the place, such as the Ahrenshooper Literature Days or Ahrenshooper Film Nights.
