Arts +

Spend six weeks during the summer gaining full-time hands-on professional experience in the arts. This program offers several project options and is open to graduate and undergraduate students at Duke.

Arts + is a six-week summer experience for graduate and undergraduate students grounded in the arts. An initiative of Duke Arts, Arts + sheds light on the behind-the-scenes work of arts administration, and the creative work required to build an artistic product. Teams work in small groups of graduate and undergraduate students, guided by a project lead from the Duke Arts office, or a community arts organization. Other participation benefits may include professional practice education, hands-on skills building workshops and team building activities. Outcomes of Arts + may include season launches, series curation or preparing creative projects for next stages.

Arts + takes place during Summer Session 1. Students will receive a stipend of $3,000 for their participation OR room and board in on-campus housing.
