Since March 1st 2017 iii has been developing a new workspace in The Hague. The workspace is planned to provide 560 m2 of production facilities for artists. The workspace is located at Willem Dreespark 312, next to Moerwijk train station, within a new cultural incubator founded by a partnership of three artist initiatives, Locatie ZSW2 and iii, in collaboration with Stroom Den Haag and the Municipality of The Hague.

Goals

iii will create a high quality production facility that will service a community of artists based in The Hague who work in the field of Art and Technology.

By bringing these artists under one roof and providing a permanent and high quality facility at an affordable price, the intention of iii is to  supply the community with shared resources that can help artists at different career stages grow further in their practices in a stable, safe and inspiring environment.

User base

Workspace members are either artists with a full time professional practice and working at an international level, or recent graduates from an art academy or music conservatory that have distinguished themselves during their studies and who are determined to pursue an artistic career.

In addition to members, the workspace will also be used by guest residents taking place in iii’s international guest residency program, and it will be made available to occasional users for specific projects.

Self Management

The workspace is managed collectively by members, following a culture of sharing and of facilitating others.

Members are required to make a commitment to the space of minimum one year and to contribute time to the management of the space, in addition to a monthly membership payment.

Planned Facilities

Project Space

G area, 200 m2,  height: 570cm

The project space is ideal for larger scale projects and public presentations. Workspace members will be able to book the project space for exclusive use, and otherwise it will function as shared workspace where members will work on different projects side by side. The project space can be occasionally rented out for short time periods to other artists and organisations.

Tool workshop

K area, 75m2

The tool workshop will be divided into three areas for working with wood, metal, and electronics. All workspace members will have access to the workshop and will be able to store and share their own tools here.

Shared Workspace

Shared Office Space

D-5, 56m2

This luminous room overlooking the canal on the first floor is ideal for computer work in a warm and quiet environment. The space  can hold several fixed and shared workstations and can also be used for meetings and social gatherings during meals and coffee breaks.

Private Studios

C-1, 35m2 and F4, 37m2

These 2 private studios are each shared by two workspace members. Studio F-4 has plenty of natural light and overlooks the water, but has poor sound isolation, while studio C-1 is more suitable for music and sound work.
