PRO Onderzoek (Research)

• Research projects and residencies that help the recipient to further develop his or her work and artistic practice;
• Research projects that are intended to strengthen The Hague's artistic climate.

For whom
• Individuals who are registered as a professional artist in the Stroom database;
• Intermediaries, curators, critics, publicists and other individuals who are professionally active in the contemporary art sector.

One factor that helps determine the quality of a city's artistic climate is the local critical capacity that has been built up over the years. To strengthen this capacity, Stroom attaches considerable importance to research projects and artist-in-residence programmes.
