Government information: Netherlands under lockdown. 

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: POSTPONEMENT OF DAI WEEKs 3 & 4 till February 15.

Dearest DAI community, 

Unfortunately the rapid rise of COVID-19 cases worldwide due to the Omicron variant and the continuation of the current lockdown in the Netherlands till at least January 14th  force us to rethink our plans. Many international flights are currently being canceled or re-scheduled in different ways. 
Thursday January 6, 2022  our crew urgently came together to discuss and evaluate the risks. Today, January 7 we are sad to convey that we have come to a decision and are postponing DAI Week 3 ( Arnhem) and DAI Week 4 (COOPs at 6 locations) to a month later. 
Under the current conditions,  embarking on such a complex endeavour of having DAI landing in the Netherlands in mid January to then proceed with DAI Week 4 in various location runs a high risk of possible contaminations and raises anxieties for allmost all involved (students, tutors and the team). 
We are of course aware that rescheduling might negatively affect your existing plans around jobs and other obligations. We will use the online COUNCIL meeting on the 12th of January at 11:00 to think together on how to best support those students who will be suffering the most from the re-scheduling.

Postponing means that for now we are not to go online with our program and stick to the desire of our community to meet in flesh. We cherish the perspective of coming together for study in February - but should this turn out to be too optimistic in regard to Omicron's unpredictable development we will take a decision no later than February 9 about partially going on line in February and to further postpone some other parts and move them to Bergamo and PAF. All this ONLY if the situation gets worse or no better at all. As said: we as a team, while working towards coming together in flesh in February, will do our UTMOST to achieve this in a safe and manageable way.
Find the new dates for DAI Week 3&4 below.
