Where do you find sanctuary?

On August 23, 2016, Duke Chapel launched the #FindSanctuary initiative to explore the ways and places the Duke community finds sanctuary. Since then, more than 2,500 photos were contributed to the project. The photos were shared using disposable cameras made available for visitors to the Chapel and also online using the #FindSanctuary hashtag on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

Ruby Hung, a master’s student in Duke’s Digital Art History/Computational Media program, created a video montage of these crowdsourced images, which is being displayed in the Chapel’s main entrance (narthex). Ruby was advised by Dr. Mark Olson, the Cordelia and William Laverack Family Assistant Professor of Art, Art History & Visual Studies at Duke University.
