The Arts Annex is the hub of Duke’s student art scene. The space is home to rehearsal, studio and programming spaces for student artists and organizations. The Annex makes the arts accessible to all Duke students by providing resources, enhanced programming and a welcoming environment that inspires self-expression, exploration and collaboration. At the Annex, you can work on your own creative project or take a free DukeCreate workshop to learn something new. During the fall and spring semesters, one free community workshop is offered at the Arts Annex!

Duke students can drop by the Arts Annex to use its open studios and art supplies for free. The Annex is located at 404 Gattis Street (off of bus routes C1, C2 and CSW).
