De Balie is a centre for culture and politics in Amsterdam that creatively mixes social and cultural perspectives and embraces unexpected outcomes. This unique setting is carried out through live magazines, talk shows, simulation games, festivals and lively discussions, film screenings and theater performances.
Instituut voor Netwerkcultuur
The Institute of Network Cultures was founded in 2004 by media theorist Geert Lovink, following his appointment as professor within the Institute of Interactive Media at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (Hogeschool van Amsterdam). The Institute of Network Cultures has focused greatly on establishing sustainable networks. The conferences and gatherings organized by the Institute of Network Cultures are central to this process, since sharing knowledge with a wide audience lays the foundations for a substantial network of knowledge. These gatherings of networks result in virtual products such as online networks, mailing lists and forums, as well as more tangible products such as publications (e.g. a book series in association with NAi Publishers), workshops, presentations, expert meetings and conferences.
Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid
One of the largest audio-visual archives in Europe. The Institute preserves a major part of the Dutch audio-visual heritage and makes it accessible to potential users. The collection totals over 700,000 hours of television, radio, music and film. But the Institute is more than just a collection. Apart from functioning as an audio-visual archive for the national broadcasting corporations and others, it also offers a unique media experience for its visitors.
An independent think tank that continuously searches for ways to create social innovation needed to improve the knowledge society. This innovation starts with discovering challenges for the Dutch knowledge society and finding the possible answers to them, putting these issues on the agendas of policy makers and government stakeholders. Kennisland also develops and realises projects, programmes and platforms to help others fix the issues at hand. They also transfer findings and knowledge about the ins-and-outs of social innovation to help others forward.
