The PRO Invest subsidy supports young artists based in The Hague in the development of their artistic practice and is aimed to keep artists and graduates of the art academy in the city of The Hague. In order to give the artists an extra incentive Stroom organizes the annual Stroom Invest Week. This week consists of a public evening of talks, a program of studio visits, presentations and a number of informal meetings. The intent is to broaden the visibility of artists from The Hague through future exhibitions, presentations and exchange programs.

Interviews on art blog Jegens & Tevens
In collaboration with art blog Jegens en Tevens a series of articles will be published with the artists who received a PRO Invest subsidy in 2015 and who participate in the Stroom Invest Week 2016. Later on there will also be interviews with the participating curators and critics.
