This research project investigates how urban incubator spaces in Amsterdam facilitate globally migrating artists and designers. In particular, the project examines the interrelations of the infrastructures provided by incubator spaces, the practices and motivations of the so-called “creative migrants” taking residency there, and the potential of these space to connect local creative ecosystems to globalizing cultural networks.
