DAI (Dutch Art Institute)

School for art, research, experiment, 
roaming, curating, performance, writing & publishing. The DAI is one of the accredited master programs of the ArtEZ Graduate Community in Arnhem, the Netherlands. Rather than requiring its students to be present on a daily basis, the DAI offers an alternative educational environment: students, tutors and invited guests take part in monthly, one week-long residential programs that last from early morning until late at night. The so-called DAI-week is structured by a dense weaving of seminars, reading groups, publishing classes, lectures, performances, presentations and face to face conversations, communal meals and workshops in Arnhem as well as other locations worldwide. This highly concentrated time functions as a pressure cooker for a collective exchange of knowledge that accumulates throughout the year, with every month's gathering.
