Advisory Board and Selecting Committee


A competent advisory board supports the work of the association Künstlerhaus Ahrenshoop e.V. and advises on the topics chosen including the financial situation as well as the management of the house including the acquisition of sponsors. The advisory board bi-annually appoints a selecting committee and guarantees its independence. The selecting committee usually consists of eight jurors whose names will be publicized after the deadline of the application procedure.

The members of the advisory board are suggested by the members of the association and appointed by the managing committee for five years each. The advisory board consists of members representing contemporary styles and movements and cultural institutions in northern Germany, the countries bordering the Baltic Sea and the Nordics. The advisory board works on a voluntary basis without expense allowance.
