Hope is your superpower. Don’t let anybody or anything make you hopeless.
– Bryan Stevenson
Patrons enjoy a costume contest and free community film screening at the drive-in.
Even though we aren’t able to gather in theaters, Arts & Lectures is doubling down on our mission to educate, entertain and inspire through robust digital content, virtual education and outreach programs and online resources from today's premier artists and thought leaders.
We are unshaken in our commitment to keep Santa Barbara a culturally vibrant place and a community that champions thoughtful dialogue. We’re clear about our role in making this happen, and we accept the challenge.
To do this we need your support! Please join us as we navigate this new frontier. Be part of the team that enriches the city we love with the next bold moves and big ideas.

Gifts are tax-deductible less the fair market value of benefits received. You may choose to decline benefits at the time you make your gift, in which case the full gift amount is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. No benefits can be conferred upon individuals who give through donor advised funds, personal IRAs, or family foundations. It is the policy of UCSB and the UC Regents that a modest portion of gifts and/or the income from gifts may be used to defray the costs of raising and administering funds, and that the current gift fee is 6%.
Please contact (805) 893-3755 if you have any questions.
