Duke’s visual artists get more creative during pandemic | #coronavirus | #kids. | #children | #schools | #childsafety | #kids | #chldern | #parents | #schoolsafey


A group of Duke University senior students in the capstone course of the Science and the Public certificate program spent the spring 2022 semester delving into how an array of artists, administrators, students, and musicians created and found community during the pandemic.

With instruction from Rose Hoban and Anne Blythe, from NC Health News, and their instructor Misha Angrist, a professor of the practice at the Duke Social Science Research Institute and senior fellow in the Initiative for Science & Society, the students collected oral histories that give a panoramic view of how individuals lost and found fellowship amid COVID-19 and what impact that will have on post-pandemic.

Tyler Edwards (Duke University, Class of 2022) interviewed instructors of the DukeCreate program at the Arts Annex, a wonderful program that brings artists from the community to teach creative skills into the university’s community arts hub. In their interviews, the artists talked about how their personal lives and creative practices were impacted by the pandemic, as well as the adaptations they made to reconnect with their students and peers.

All agreed that teaching classes over the past two years has allowed them to give back to and connect with young artists and give them access to an outlet for their creative. Each of them also shared both their longing for the pre-Zoom world where they could give hands-on instruction without worry and pieces of wisdom and tools they’ve picked up during the pandemic that will assist them as they move forward.
