DAI-bulletin 2011-2012 number four January 2012
Dear friends and relations of the DAI,
Farewell to old things !
There is a lot to be done in the new year, so we are not going to wait for the bankers and the politicians. "You can play a shoestring, if you're sincere", John Coltrane said.
Here, at the DAI in Arnhem, we're all up for it.
