Independent creative initiatives make an important contribution to the fabric of the city.
Often used as a means to improve neighborhoods, the value of these initiatives has proved to have outgrown the status of temporality and has shown to have greater value than being a means to something else. The field has matured into a presence essential to the city, therefore it should have a recognized position in the ecosystem of The Hague. At this moment, the independent creative field is insufficiently linked to other players in the ecosystem. A better connection with this ecosystem and a more solid position in it is desirable. As an essential component of the ecosystem we should stand strong, have a voice and be (re)present(ed).
To be better able to connect and take position, we unite.
