Obligatory contribution to the Project Fund
The DAI’s monthly gatherings at various locations come with expenses outside of the actual classroom for which the DAI has created the Project Fund. The fund covers: all accommodation (bed, shower) and all communal meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) during DAI Weeks plus travel costs that exceed the costs to be made for the trip from your home-base to Arnhem and back (see the conditions below).
For students paying the institutional tuition, the obligatory contribution to the Project Fund is included in the annual sum of € 10.700 which they will have to pay to the ArtEZ University of the Arts to cover for their two years of studies. For all others the costs come on top of the tuition.
WHAT IS COVERED ?
-bed & shower during all 9 DAI Weeks
During all DAI Weeks all students are accommodated in youth hostels or similar facilities.
Take notice: facilities shared between several DAI students ( but Covid-19 restrictions are fully taken in account).
-all communal meals during all 9 DAI Weeks
Lunches and dinners served at the DAI are always meat-free (in general vegetarian, quite often vegan, incidentally we serve dishes containing some fish (optional, always next to "veg")). It goes without saying that any food allergies will be taken in account. Breakfasts are often taken care of by the hostels where we are staying, but occassionally, at self catering locations, by our crew, in which case they are vegetarian as well.
- travel costs above "from home to the Netherlands and back"
The distance between where a student lives and any place in the Netherlands is the measure for travel costs involved. Each student is supposed to pay for their trip from their home-address to the DAI-week and back. If a DAI-week takes place outside of the Netherlands, each student, in close conversation with Jacq van der Spek and logistics assistant Vinita Gatne, needs to find the cheapest possible means of transport to that location. If the costs involved are higher than the travel costs for that specific student to travel to the Netherlands (from their home-base), DAI will contribute, always under three very strict conditions:
1.At the beginning of the year Jacq van der Spek has been informed about the location from where the student expects to be traveling and also about the average costs of travel from that location to the Netherlands.
2. The student has made a serious effort to find the cheapest possible ticket (all destinations are known in advance and can be booked from October onward). Please note that within a circle of max 400 kilometeres around the Netherlands, the DAI will mostly arrange free transfers by touring car from Arnhem to where the specific DAI-week will take place. In that case students are expected to travel to the Netherlands first ( pick up locations will be communicated). If students nevertheless prefer to travel directly to the DAI-week destination the extra costs cannot be refunded !!
3.IMPORTANT: refunding of tickets is ONLY possible if the obligatory contributions to the Project Fund have been made on time. The payments to the Project Fund have to be made in two (or more) instalments. DAI will send you information about how to pay, right after the introduction week.
If Covid-19 will force us to bring an entire DAI week online there will be a discount/refund of 175 euro.
Skipping a DAI week as an individual student, for whatever reason DOES NOT ENTITLE YOU TO A DISCOUNT. The Project Fund partially covers the costs made for our Living Together during DAI Weeks. If everything would be broken down to individual payments for actual costs per student per day, we would to have to charge each student a MUCH HIGHER contribution. This would lead to students skipping meals, days or even entire DAI Weeks, purely for financial reasons. To make sure this would not happen The Project Fund came into being. The Project Fund is a SOLIDARITY FUND which allows us to welcome everybody on board for a very reasonable prize.
