5. Ignore your responsibilities and have fun! When was the last time you did an arts n' crafts project anyway?

Come to the festival and you can pretend you're at summer camp instead of midterms! We'll be doing activities like ceramics, screen printing, painting, etc. with DukeCreate workshops taught by Durham artists.

6. And the event is FREE!

You can experience all this creative awesomeness for ZERO dollars.

7. Oh yeah, did I mention the food is free for the first 200 people?

That's right, I said Freeee Fooood for the first lucky 200 (arrive early!).
