About the Asian Creatives Festival

How do you showcase your Asian identity through the arts? How is your identity expressed through creativity?

Duke Asian Students Association (ASA)’s Asian Creatives Festival is a four-day celebration of art related to Asian identities and experiences. Running October 21–24, ACF aims to create a space for Duke’s Asian communities to showcase how you express your identity, culture, and struggles through art, whether it is dance, singing, photography, design, or any form of creativity!

Through workshops and performances from your fellow classmates and student groups, ACF is an opportunity for our communities to learn and improve different artistic skills as well as to see the unique and vast talent other creatives have. These range from dance workshops to arts and crafts and more! Asian Creatives Fest is for anyone who has ever thought of the crossroads of their ethnic culture, identity, and arts and is open to all skill levels, no previous experience necessary.

The event will conclude with an art night market on Sunday evening on BC Plaza, aiming to bring together the Duke community one more time with vendors, booths, activities, and live performances by students and local artists from 6-8 pm.

We hope you can join us for ACF this year!
