Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts (DITA) promotes a vibrant engagement between Christian theology and the arts at Duke Divinity School and beyond.
DITA is an innovative venture at the heart of the Divinity School led by cutting-edge teaching and research. It is dedicated to showing how the arts can be enriched by theology, and theology in turn renewed through the arts.
DITA seeks to intergrate three main components: research, teaching, and artistic practice.
