In May 2011 Stroom Den Haag opened the Dutch branch of the e-flux Time/Bank, a platform and community for the cultural sector where goods and services can be exchanged without the use of money. The current distrust of existing financial and economic systems and the radical cuts in art funding are an important driving force behind this parallel micro economy based on trust and solidarity.
This initiative by Anton Vidokle and Julieta Aranda is a perfect match with the Stroom program Upcycling which investigates new perspectives in the creation of value and meaning. The launch of Time/Bank was accompanied by a number of special events, including a symposium, workshops and the opening of Time/Store Den Haag.

REWIRE Festival 2012
The second edition of the REWIRE Festival takes place from Friday, November 2nd, through Sunday, November 4th. REWIRE is a small-scale, intimate festival for visual arts, new music and related arts.
The festival is being held in a fascinating transformational neighbourhood, around the power station in the Regentesse District of the Hague. Old and striking buildings, such as the former Seventh-day Adventist church and the old power plant warehouse will be temporarily transformed into intimate locations for concerts, an exhibition, performances, screenings and talks.
REWIRE includes both a daytime and a night-time programme. During the day, artist talks, tours and screenings will be held. The central exhibition is open to visitors all day, until midnight. At night, a range of innovative concerts and performances will take place.
