DAI Week nr. 4 ~ Arnhem, Athens, Berlin, Bilbao, Utrecht and Amsterdam | Wongema | Schiermonnikoog. February 22 till March 1, 2022
Visit DAI’s COVID-19 page for extensive information on our protocol during DAI weeks.
Persevering through heavy winds and rain and while engaging in a multifaceted study of six HTDTWT seminars, two Academic Writing sessions, nineteen KITCHEN presentations and a multitude of student led activities, we have officially round up our prolific third DAI week for this Academic Year.
We graciously wave goodbye to Arnhem and Buitencentrum Overasselt (for now) as we set to embark on our forthcoming week.
DAI WEEK 4 arrives immediately after and it set to unravel its prospects in multiple locations in the Netherlands and beyond. Dedicated exclusively to our COOPs, these six days of study find our six study groups landing in Athens, Bilbao, Berlin, Amsterdam, Utrecht and Arnhem in a first-ever-chance to visit the 'headquarters' of our six partner institutions.
We express our gratitude to Bulegoa/zb, Casco Art Institute: Working for the Commons, If I Can't Dance I Don't Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution, SAVVY Contemporary, sonsbeek20-24 and State of Concept for welcoming our proposal to host COOP in their home-cities and in close proximity to their base.
