MAKE A GIFT


We need your support to showcase world-class performance, make our offerings accessible and put artists into engagement with campus and community.

Support Artist Residencies

Instead of a one-night tour stop, artists visiting Duke Performances are in residence for several days or weeks — making significant engagement with students, faculty, and community and offering context on their work and expert training on craft. Your gift allows us to provide more meaningful opportunities for our constituents to engage with visiting artists.

Support New Work

Over the past decade, Duke Performances has commissioned, developed, and world-premiered more than 50 pieces of music, theater, and dance – incubated amongst our students, faculty, and community and premiered in our facilities, these works then toured the country and the world. Your gift allows us to expand, improve, and advance the new works we commission.

Support the Arts in Durham

With offerings in a dozen venues, grand to intimate, on campus and in town, we create a platform for patrons at Duke, in Durham, and throughout the region to learn from and enjoy the world’s finest artists. Your gift allows us deliver a willfully eclectic array of world-class performance in a manner that is both accessible and affordable.
