ArtEZ & External Mental Coaching:
Personal Coaching at DAI:
* In-space is a supportive thinking space to reflect on issues around each student's own and others’ experiences as a member of the DAI community. This is an organic process where all students can explore their concerns about race, gender, sexuality, mental health, culture and beyond. In-space is confidentially guided by Wanderley Santos.
In 2023 he is assisted by Gabriel Acevedo who will take care of practicalities and schedule all appointments.
*Once per academic year, following their Kitchen presentation, every student at the DAI is scheduled for a one-on-one meeting of one full hour with artistic director | head of program, Gabriëlle Schleijpen. Planning: Nikos Doulos. (If you need to share or discuss an urgent or sensitive issue of importance to your study and general wellbeing, you are most welcome to contact her and ask for an ad hoc additional (skype-)meeting, preferably to be scheduled in between two DAI Weeks.)
