During this time around 60 international students and 20 tutors will engage in a dense weaving of seminars, face to face conversations, cooperative study groups, walks, communal meals, work-outs, and presentations. 

With an office in Arnhem, The Netherlands, DAI is an itinerant Masters Degree study programme that fosters a variety of praxes at the intersections of art and theory (both seen as un-disciplines), and invigorates (collective) thinking, researching, performing, curating, writing, voicing, making and publishing. 

Planned and in conversation with the artistic director Gabriëlle Schleijpen and program co-ordinator Jacq van der Spek since 2 years, postponed 3 times, we are so so glad this course can finally take place at the premises of Nida Art Colony (NAC). 

NAC is very much looking forward to the upcoming week, welcoming and hosting this group of incredibly kind and engaged students, the inspiring DAI crew as well as the very interesting group of tutors -
