Dear friends and relations of the DAI,
April is the cruellest month - but not in Arnhem. The past days have brought us an intensive 3 day 'bootcamp' with young artists tentatively interested in our program. In only one day they published their own magazine and tomorrow they will stand up as lecture performers.
From tomorrow onward the regular DAI-students and staff will embark on their 7th DAI-week of this academic year. This week you are again welcome to attend our PUBLIC PROGRAM: we proudly draw your attention to lectures OPEN TO THE PUBLIC with 3 distinguished and very cool guest speakers :

Followed by a discussion with Charles Esche .
April 19, 20.00 hrs at our auditorium, Kortestraat 27, Arnhem.
