Funding, documentation, studios

Stroom Den Haag implements a so-called stimulating policy to strengthen The Hague's artistic climate and increase its visibility. In this field Stroom acts both as initiator, intermediary, advisor and talent developer. This results in a stimulating policy aimed at talent development, the strenghtening of the artistic practice, visibility and excellence.

Funding / subsidies

Stroom Den Haag's grant scheme takes the specific strengths and considerable potential of The Hague's art scene as its point of departure. The scheme is driven by two main motives. In the first place, the wish to strengthen the local artistic climate - primarily through the encouragement of research and in-depth exploration, international exchange and the retention of recent art school graduates for the city. In the second place, the wish to increase the visibility of The Hague's art scene and artists. In doing so, Stroom is advised by an independent advisory committee.
The grant scheme comprises three main categories, each of which is geared towards a particular objective. >> read more
