Dear all,

Please, could you let me know if the price of 30 Euros is for the 4 workhops, or only for each one? And how to pay for the registration?

I am a master student.
Thanks in advance!

Dear Andrea,

It's 30 euro's per workshop - so 120 euro for all four - , and there is no registration fee. If you want to participate, please contact Marion Janssens and she'll explain how you can pay for the workshops.

Best regards,
Cleo Freriks
