In order to minimize health and safety risks from COVID-19 to our patrons, the larger community, and Duke students, faculty, and staff, Duke University has adopted new policies on spring semester classes, residential life, travel, events, and campus visitors. In keeping with the university’s directives, we are cancelling public events at the Rubenstein Arts Center through April 20. More information.

What is the unique role of the arts in reimagining how we think about, experience, and deliver health and social services? Theatre Artist/Researcher and MacArthur Fellow Dr. Anne Basting shares stories of her longstanding transdisciplinary work at the intersections of art, dance/movement, theatre, music, visual culture, bioethics, gerontology, and neuroscience. In addition to discussing her 20-plus-year career as an artist-scholar whose TimeSlips ( project has occupied the forefront of art engagement and health, Basting will also offer a sneak peek of her forthcoming multi-year collaboration with Duke and in Durham centered on adults living alone with dementia and cognitive disabilities.
