DAI BULLETIN | WEEK 9, 24 - 30 JUNE 2019

tag: Cagliari

(scroll for the day-to-day program)

Dear students, alumni and colleagues, 

This month DAI’s soft spaceship returns to Sardinia, where we will wind up a prolific year of study and conviviality, and will share our findings in the context of the COOP study groups with each other and with the public.

In close collaboration with Luca Carboni (DAI, 2018), we will be presenting COOP Summit 2019 (June 28 & 29) followed by Roaming Assembly#25: Radio Mutiny (June 30) accommodated by institutional and less institutional hosts in and around the city of Cagliari.

The 30th of June will also mark the end of the two year study trajectory of our astonishingly bright and equally lovely and dear second year students Olivia Abächerli, Joannie Baumgartner, Ciprian Burete, Sara Cattin, Lucie Draai, Lukas Malte Hoffmann, Dina Mohamed, Yen Noh, Karina Sarkissova, Zoe Scoglio, Leeron Tur-Kaspa, Duruo Wang, Polly Wright, Clara Amaral, Matthieu Blond, Livio Casanova, Bethany Crawford, Teresa Distelberger, Vinita Gatne, Irati Irulegui Otermin, Samantha McCulloch, Sofia Montenegro, Edel O'Reilly, Elien Ronse, Eric Peter, Clara Saito, Jasmin Schädler and Ciarán Wood. 

It is with a heavy heart but also with great confidence in their future journeys, which will doubtlessly bring them to places where they can shine and be of relevance to the communities they care for, journeys which, hopefully, once in a while, will also bring them back to DAI. And if that aint easy, who knows, one early morning, DAI's spaceship might suddenly pop up in their backyard. But first things first: on the 30th of June we will toast and toast again to all of that and much, much more: around sunset, at the Lazzaretto di Cagliari. 

But before this solemn moment has arrived, there is a full week ahead of us. June 24,25,26,27 are reserved for the preparations for COOP SUMMIT 2019 but these will also offer us some time to wrap up our conversations on all things DAI (for better or for worse).

I am available for any individual (student or tutor) or any group (curriculum, care, other) wanting to share thoughts, concerns, news, ask questions or otherwise.

Please have at look here, at my schedule in Cagliari and do not hesitate to send me an e-mail to reserve one of the available slots. You are more than welcome !

We are especially thrilled that, following our wonderful days together in Berlin, Ayesha Hameed will join us, once again, in Cagliari, this time in a dual role: she will not only attend our public events in Cagliari in order to write a review about them, immediately afterwards she will travel onward to Arnhem, where she, on the 3th of july, in her role of "domain specific expert" will deliver a spoken reflection on the DAI's modus operandi, addressing the expert panel, which will visit us at WALTER books as part of our upcoming accreditation

The detailed day-to-day program for the entire week (+ extensions) in Cagliari is to be found underneath.
