Art & Artists Are Essential
Art connects us meaningfully even when we are apart. Artists within and around the Duke University community remind us of the full spectrum of our creative power and our resilience as we navigate this new environment. We seek to reflect, inspire, and give audience to those who have lost in-person opportunities.
We invite you to explore this collection of voices, opportunities, and offerings.
Virtual Arts Events
A round-up of opportunities to learn, listen, and watch together (apart). Unless otherwise noted, all events are free and open to everyone.
Community Art Offerings
We know nothing can replace gathering to experience art in person, as it happens, together. We also know artists are adapting and finding new ways to share their work. We share these offerings with our community here, and invite you to offer your own.
Reflections on the Resilience of Art
We invite artists and thinkers to share words on what has changed or been lost, what they're finding inspiration in, and what we can count on to remain the same when we transition from crisis to renewal.
Arts Resources & Opportunities for COVID-19
As Duke University responds to the coronavirus crisis, students, staff, and faculty across campus turned to the arts to offer new ways to connect and support each other during this uncertain time. This community wellspring demonstrates how art can be affirming during times of uncertainty.
