UC Santa Barbara Arts & Lectures - Creating Hope

Ticket Office: (805) 893-3535
MON - FRI / 10AM - 5PM

This is a time that calls for Optimism, Resilience, Courage and Vision. Santa Barbara needs Hope, and Arts & Lectures is uniquely positioned to respond.

A&L's 2021-2022 CREATING HOPE programming initiative has already inspired our community with presentations by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, chef José Andrés and author Anne Lamott. We will continue to inspire, through shared experiences with thought leaders, creative problem solvers and arts visionaries who will guide us forward. CREATING HOPE programs strengthen human connection, promote emotional well-being, joy and compassion, and envision positive change.
