A leader in community arts outreach, ¡Viva el Arte de Santa Bárbara! brings accessible, high-quality programming to schools and neighborhood venues across Santa Barbara County. Created in 2006 out of a commitment to arts access for all, Viva works with dozens of local partners to serve students, at-risk youth, and families with free family performances and educational outreach activities. Each year, Viva performers travel between Carpinteria and Santa Maria to reach more than 15,000 county residents, sharing joy and cultural traditions that represent the unique cultural heritage of our region. ¡Viva el Arte de Santa Bárbara! is a collaboration between Arts & Lectures, the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Center, Isla Vista School, and The Marjorie Luke Theatre.
