tags: Arnhem, the world


Summer break: from July 15 - August 19, the entire DAI crew is in retreat. For urgent matters it is still possible to contact us, but we kindly ask you to, as much as possible, respect everybodies deepfelt need to recharge. 


Since September 2017, for the duration of each monthly DAI-week, in ongoing conversation with our expanded network and with the dedicated support of the visionary board of the ArtEZ University of the Arts, our mothership is hosting students, faculty and crew at a selection of locations in-and outside of the Netherlands. In line with both the need to make connections with the world, as well as the need to retreat for in-depth research, our landings may happen in rural areas, provincial towns as well as the occasional metropolis. All landing-stations are announced ahead of the academic year and for students there is a system in place in regard to costs.

In between DAI-weeks we are mooring in he city of Arnhem in the East-Netherlands, where we build upon both the support structure of the ArtEZ University of the Arts as well as on a strong collegial network which includes the Werkplaats Typografie, the Sonsbeek Foundation, Museum Arnhem and last but not least WALTERbooks, our brilliant local partner in "this labor of love".

WALTERbooks has warmly embraced our archive, our books and all our household contents. Outside DAI weeks, core crew members are present in the bookshop on Tuesdays.

Meetings with individual crew members, during or outside DAI-weeks, in-and outside Arnhem or the Netherlands, via skype, phone or in the flesh, should always be arranged by appointment. 

DAI and WALTER's affiliation manifests itself on a variety of levels, from the very practical to the conceptual. As part of the  Planetary Campus, WALTER and DAI collaboratively run the Dream Art Institute which offers (limited) possibility to sojourn in Arnhem, in order to, for example, team up for the production of a publication, with the master students at the Werkplaats Typografie, or to visit the ArtEZ headquarters and get some material work done at the Universities very well equipped workshops which can be used by our students upon prior agreement.
