Looking back at Dutch Design Week 2023
From 21 to 29 October 2023, the Creative Industries Fund NL presented a new crop of emerging design talent during Dutch Design Week. For the first time, this edition of Stimuleringsfonds presents talent, organized by the Talent Development Grant, took place at an entirely unique location: the Portiersloge at Strijp-S. A further 16 projects supported by the Innovationlabs, a joint programme of the Creative Industries Fund NL, on behalf of the six national culture funds, and CLICKNL, were on show in the Klokgebouw.

Stimuleringsfonds presents talent
Every year, emerging design talents active in the fields of design, architecture and digital culture are given the opportunity to develop themselves optimally in artistic and professional terms, thanks to a grant from the Creative Industries Fund NL. This year's batch consisted of 50 participants, who, through the content-based programme The Rest is Still Unwritten, were given daily free space to present their work through talks, performances, video portraits, workshops, installations and more. With this presentation, they show where they are now and what path they took last year.
Innovationlabs #1: The Living Archive
The exhibition Innovationlabs #1: The Living Archive showed the harvest from the first edition of Innovationlabs, a programme that provides funding for innovation through projects that contribute to the sustainable recovery of the sector. Part of the exhibition was an Open Lab, where you could see demonstrations of new technologies, attend podcast recordings, engage with makers and more. Four sessions were also organised in which the initiators of the 16 projects shared their results, knowledge and insights. Read the reports of the sessions No Data No Future and De creatieve praktijk van de toekomst ('Creative practice of the future') via the Innovatielabs website.
