DEMAN Lounge

Open 24/7, the DEMAN Lounge is your one-stop-shop for resources to get you started, as well as advance your path to crafting your career in creative industries with invaluable features including:


DEMAN Live is a Zoom series featuring conversations with alumni working in creative industries to help Dukies navigate careers and opportunities and gain creative skills. Watch past episodes, including special editions with DukeCreate & StudioDuke on the creative process, plus stay tuned for upcoming episodes.

DEMAN Live Audio

DEMAN is partnering with Hear at Duke, Duke’s student-run podcast hub, to present DEMAN Live Audio. Now you can listen to past Zoom episodes of DEMAN Live wherever you listen to podcasts.


Are you a Duke student, faculty member, alumni, or unit interested in hosting a Zoom event with alumni in creative industries? We can help connect you with potential alumni panelists, navigate Zoom best practices, and market your event. After your virtual event concludes, we’ll also upload the Zoom recording to our DEMAN Live episodes page.

DEMAN Navigators

Whether you’re a student or alum interested in internships, jobs, alumni outreach, and/or learning more about co-curricular and career resources, as well as academic programs at Duke, DEMAN Navigators is here to help you by scheduling one-on-one meetings with our team.


StudioDuke is a two-semester creative lab and mentorship program providing students the opportunity to take their advanced, on-going creative projects to the next level. Students are matched with creative industry professionals (including Duke alumni) for one-on-one mentorship. StudioDuke is a program of Duke Innovation & Entrepreneurship, in collaboration with DEMAN (Duke Entertainment, Media & Arts Network) and Duke Arts.

CASTs (Creative Arts Student Teams)

CASTs is a paid work opportunity that serves the Ruby and arts initiatives across campus in way that empowers individual team members to “own” their projects, provides meaningful professional development opportunities in arts administration, and fosters a sense of community among the CAST class.
