BCD-400On August 18th, 19th and 20th, a group of eleven Durham high school students will put on the second annual Bull City Dignity Project, supported by Kenan Institute for Ethics, a documentary theater project based on the lives of Durham’s community members. Over the course of the summer, the cast members compile interviews with Durham residents from across multiple communities and generations, and explore the forces that shape the city’s ever-changing landscape, history of inequality, and unique culture. From stories of health inequality in the “City of Medicine” to an exploration of policing and restorative justice, join us for an evening of story-sharing, community and a celebration of the young voices in Durham. Tickets are pay-as-you-please but must be reserved. Proceeds will benefit future documentary projects.

Project Change is a pre-orientation program that provides an immersive leadership experience in which participants live, learn, and work in Durham, competing with a team of  peers to find ways to solve the city’s critical problems. Students have fun, meet friends, and get to know the city where they’ll call home for the next four years. Run by the Kenan Institute for Ethics, the program invites incoming first years to spend eight intense days of taking risks, making mistakes, and meeting challenges with a select group of students, staff, community leaders, and faculty. They join a diverse team of eighteen peers and are given the adventure of a lifetime—to change the lives of complete strangers in creative and dramatic ways.

Complete information, including required forms, can be found at the Project Change page. Registration is completed through Duke Student Affairs.
