Duke Center for Documentary Studies Spring Celebration

Please join CDS for a celebration and showcase of recent work by students. Everyone is welcome to attend - students, faculty, and staff, as well as community members and visitors.

View exhibitions of student work from two semesters of courses led by six instructors, and watch screenings of two films. Listen to live music by Duke's very own Solfish, and enjoy refreshments catered by My Croft Kitchen.

No registration is needed; just show up and bring your friends!


From West Campus, by bus: Take the East/West campus bus. Pull the cord immediately after passing under the first bridge. Cross the street and proceed toward the second bridge. You will see steps up the hill by the blue safety light and telephone. At the top of the steps, turn left and follow the sidewalk along West Pettigrew Street. CDS is the first complex on the left - two large white houses.

From West Campus, by car: Take Campus Drive toward East Campus. Take a left onto Swift Avenue. Go through two traffic lights and immediately get in the right lane. Turn right at the next corner onto West Pettigrew Street (just before the railroad tracks). CDS is the second complex on the right - two large white houses - just past the red-brick Hillcrest Convalescent Center.

Guests can park in the back CDS parking lot (behind the buildings) or West Pettigrew Street.
