Support


As Duke Performances moves into its second decade, we need your support to sustain the program, keeping the work fresh, accessible, and forward-thinking.

Your gift will help support willfully eclectic programming

Your gift helps us bring the world’s finest artists to Durham; direct your support toward your favored style or genre: Classical, Jazz, International, Theater, or Dance.

Your gift will help support new work

Your gift allows us to expand the number of new works we commission. It provides important financial support as we cultivate original new work that is commissioned, created, and premiered here in Durham.

Your gift will help support artist residencies

An artist-in-residence at Duke Performances needs time to create and collaborate and the right venue in which to perform. Your gift allows us to provide critical resources for artists and allow more meaningful opportunities for our patrons to engage with these visiting artists.
