The Agency for Architecture, Design, and Digital Culture connects design fields with questions from the outside world, both regional and international.
In the field of internationalisation, Het Nieuwe Instituut has a number of formal tasks that are assigned to the Agency and that are linked to the programme of the institute wherever possible. Its main priorities are the exchange and development of knowledge, international cooperation, and the expansion of networks.
Through these basic tasks, Dutch designers are presented on various international stages, introduced to international curators, designers, and researchers, and collaborate on crossovers to facilitate the exchange of knowledge. In addition, the Agency fulfils the role of coordinator within the Netherlands' infrastructure of internationalisation, reflected in its advisory function for designers who aim to work abroad, for example.
Regionally, Het Nieuwe Instituut collaborates with local authorities and organisations on specific social issues in which a cultural interpretation can offer new perspectives.
