DAI-week number 3 at the Kunstvlaai :

At the Festival of Independents or Kunstvlaai 2012, DAI does not show case a few selected projects or workshops, but radically moves it's entire DAI-week program, including all public activities as well as all "private" tutorials, seminars and projects, lunches and dinners, and even our office from Arnhem to Amsterdam, to the (former) Sint Nicolaas Lyceum, in order to share research and findings with friends.

Prior to the DAI-week, we opened our classrooms to our alumni for their self-curated lectures, performances and presentations.
