what is duARTS?
duARTS is an umbrella organization for all major arts groups on campus. We are a resource for existing arts initiatives and the largest arts student organization on campus, generating regular events and programming to enrich the arts community at Duke. Made up of an Executive board that represents major players in the arts at Duke, as well as several councils, each aspect of duARTS represents an area of the arts on campus. Our councils are a space for student groups of similar artistic functions to come together, collaborate, and pursue common interests.
duARTS aims to make the arts an integral part of the Duke undergraduate experience by promoting student arts events and media on campus and in Durham by fostering a creative, collaborative, diverse, and accessible community of students engaged in the arts. To this end, duARTS seeks to create an active network of connections among student artists and student arts groups, both within and across disciplines, and to reap the benefits of those connections: to aid groups in seeking out collaborative opportunities and strategies, and to create a unified voice and image for Duke undergraduate arts as a whole, which may then interact with other campus organizations, the administration itself, and the student body as a whole.
