Arts and Culture team provides students an array of opportunities to expand, enhance, and explore the areas of Arts, Culture and Entertainment. This is done through visual arts and crafts workshops, performances, excursions incorporating artists and/or personalized crafts and/or local cultural excursions to Shanghai and around Jiangsu Province plus one of DKU’s signature programs, the Arts & Music Festival Week.
Arts & Music Festival lasts for a week with panel discussions, workshops, exhibition, music festival and Art for Charity. It encourages the DKU community to connect and interact via varies creative mediums, and also provides the opportunity to build a bridge between the university, local communities and citizens of Kunshan City.
Arts and Music Festival 2022
The Office of Campus Engagement, along with the Student Arts Advisory Board, held the 3rd edition of Arts and Music Festival from April 15th to 17th, 2022. Although the ongoing COVID-19 situation has brought this year’s events online, the need for arts and music has perhaps never been greater. As such, we hosted a series events dedicated to discussing the influence of this situation in the art world and the import of arts and music in times of uncertainty. We have invited students, organizations, faculty from DKU and Duke, and award-winning artists and scholars from around the world to be presented and share their works and ideas during the Festival; we also had talented student groups to perform in various formats virtually, hoping to bring the community together in this special time through arts.
