The many non-commercial cultural initiative of the Kunstgiesserei were bundled under one roof in 2006: in the Sitterwerk Foundation, a center for art and cultural enterprises situated on the industrial site in the Sittertal.

In the Sitterwerk, artists, craftspeople, and scholars encounter a broad public. Here and in the cultural-entrepreneurial enterprises that operate in the surroundings, art is created, produced, researched, and presented to the public.
