A Community of Practice is a group of people who share a common interest or passion, but do not necessarily have the same education, background or experience. During their participation the CoP members will share knowledge with each other, with professionals and with artists connected to Stroom. Their starting point is the theme of the exhibition.

The exhibition is accompanied by an extensive educational program, aimed at pupils of elementary and secondary schools.
