De PRO Invest subsidie is een belangrijk instrument dat jonge, pas afgestudeerde kunstenaars in staat stelt zich verder te ontwikkelen, onder meer in hun actieve betrokkenheid bij de Haagse kunstwereld. De Stroom Invest Week bestaat, behalve uit de gespreksavond, uit een programma van atelierbezoeken, presentaties en informele ontmoetingen met het doel de zichtbaarheid van Haagse kunstenaars te vergroten, reflectie op hun werk te bieden en in het verlengde daarvan de bekendheid met hun werk te stimuleren.
