Dancing for Change Ballet Preljocaj’s Swan Lake

IT’S A FAIRYTALE FOR THE MODERN AGE: a couple driven by love for each other and our collapsing environment takes a stand against the overpowering forces of industrialism and capitalism. Now, the birthplace of Earth Day will witness this creative reimagining of Tchaikovsky’s magnum opus when UCSB Arts & Lectures hosts Ballet Preljocaj’s Swan Lake at 8pm on Saturday, February 25th, and 3pm on Sunday, February 26th, at the Granada Theatre.

“I always have three words each time I start a new creation,” Ballet Preljocaj’s Artistic Director, Angelin Preljocaj, explained to the Detroit Metro Times earlier this

month. “These three words are ‘text,’ ‘context,’ and ‘pretext.’”

For Preljocaj, the overarching context to his take on Swan Lake had to be the ongoing environmental crisis of climate change.

“When I started to work on Swan Lake finally, the first thing I did was to read the title,” he continued to the Metro Times. “What is a swan? Swan, in our context, is an animal, and because of climate change, maybe this animal will disappear from the Earth. And a lake is a huge water reserve, and with climate change [raising] the heat of the planet now there are a lot of lakes that have started to disappear, and also there is a lot of pollution with industry.”

Boasting a strong background in both classical ballet and contemporary dance, Preljocaj has choreographed 55 works, including both company and solo pieces. Located in Aix-en-Provence, France, the Ballet Preljocaj national choreographic center prioritizes education as well as performances, introducing community members to ballet through public initiatives.

On a local level, the company will host an Intermediate/Advanced Community Ballet Class at State Street Ballet on Friday, February 24th, at 3:30pm. Participation is free, with sign-ups ongoing on the UCSB Arts & Lecture website, www. artsandlectures.ucsb.edu.

First performed in 1877, Swan Lake has persisted as one of ballet’s definitive and most difficult performances to master. A thoughtful and visually beautiful piece, Tchaikovsky’s music follows Prince Siegfried as he encounters Odette, a woman who has been turned into a swan by a sorcerer named Rothbart. Until someone who has never fallen in love before promises love to Odette, she and her companions must live as swans by day and women at night.

Connecting this premise to modern anxieties, Ballet Preljocaj transforms this magical and ultimately tragic romance into an eco-tragedy. By moving Odette and her prince out of their historic setting, Ballet Preljocaj encourages audiences to question the destructive nature of excessive and negligent industrialization, painting Rothbart as a fossil fuel-hungry developer.

Combining traditional ballet with more modern movements that will connect with the work’s current day themes, 26 dancers will bring this artistic vision to life. This meeting of the past, present, and future will be further reflected by Tchaikovsky’s breathtaking score being intermingled with new, contemporary musical arrangements, as well as the use of projected visual art to set the scene.

Since its premiere in 2020, Ballet Preljocaj’s Swan Lake has moved audiences and critics alike.

“Everywhere we go, it’s very fantastic the way that people feel this story because I keep all the romance, all the love story, all the emotion of the couples,” Preljocaj shared with the San Francisco Dance Film Festival last year. “I think it’s important, it’s not just to criticize our society, but underneath there is a love story...and that’s why, maybe, people are able to have the emotions of the couples but also the political question in a certain way.”

In Open Letter, Sheila Lodge Schools Das on Planning, Rents and Building Costs for Housing

05, 2023

(Newsmakers Editor’s note: Inflaming the conflict over construction of new housing, Supervisor Das Williams on Dec. 15 biliously attacked Santa Barbara’s planning process, as he led an effort to deny the city a grant to develop a comprehensive plan for building new units at La Cumbre Plaza. Last month, former Mayor Sheila Lodge sent him a letter, deconstructing his critique, but did not receive the courtesy of a response. After receiving permission from Lodge to publish the letter, we reached out to Williams; a few minutes after Newsmakers posted, he sent a text, asking for equal space to reply. We’ll publish his piece when it comes in).

Dear Das,

You may remember that I was very much involved in the city’s General Plan Update (GPU) process as a member of the Planning Commission GPU sub-committee. While it is true that it was long and arduous, I beg to differ with you that the planning process “went nowhere.”

In an effort to reach a compromise between those who wanted to upzone Santa Barbara and increase density everywhere, and those who didn’t want to increase density anywhere, I suggested that an experiment be made.

In a very limited part of the city’s commercial and light industrial areas, I suggested that densities be increased for rental projects for the life of the building. Presumably, units would be affordable by design. You thought it was an excellent idea.

In October of 2010, I drew the first map of where this high density overlay zone should be. It included La Cumbre Plaza. The development community said that, given this higher density, rents would be middle-income affordable. The program was adopted in 2013.

However, the city learned with the first AUD high density project to be completed that there is no such thing as affordable by design. At top density of 63 dwelling units per acre (du/acre) the rents were almost double what the development community said they would be.

Rents will be and are what the market will bear.

How economics works. The AUD high density program has been very successful in that it did stimulate the construction of apartments.

Almost none had been built for decades prior to its adoption. As of August 1, 2022, 314 high density overlay units had been completed. Another 560 have building permits issued, have been approved or are pending.

To further stimulate construction of

apartments, the city allowed for zero parking for projects in the Central Business District.

Presumably, the lowering of construction costs would result in lower rents; I asked the developer of one such project if rents would be lower because of the lack of parking.

His reply? “Rents will be what the market will bear.”

Because no middle-income affordable units were created, the city council adopted an inclusionary ordinance, requiring 10 percent of the units in a project to be priced at that range. Before such an ordinance could be adopted, state law required that a nexus study be done, an analysis to show the impact of the new units in creating demand for even more affordable units.

The study showed that an almost 20 percent inclusionary requirement would be needed, simply to keep up with the additional demand created by additional residents in the city. (More people living in the city generate an increased need for a range of services from janitors to doctors.)

It sounds counter-intuitive, but the more units are built the worse the jobs/housing imbalance becomes. The city is faced with an insolvable conundrum.

How planning works. When you said the city’s design review boards were “horrifying” and that they had “run amok” I assume you were referring to high density projects which come in for preliminary applications, asking for feedback regarding size, bulk and scale and which come back with a reduced number of units in response to the boards’ comments.

If the number of units is reduced, it is because the applicant is voluntarily trying out different proposals. They are exploring their options. The boards know that they cannot reduce the number, and they do not.

Some projects have come back with fewer units. Even so the density is often still two to three times the density allowed in your jurisdiction, the County of Santa Barbara at 30 dwelling units per acre, and the city you live in, Carpinteria at 20 du/acre. (Santa Maria’s maximum density is 22 du/acre; Goleta’s is 30 du/acre).

Bottom line. The city has gone out of its way to encourage development of rentals. Hundreds have been built at densities unheard of in our neighbors. They have not reduced the affordable housing problem.

Beyond locating financing for public housing authorities, and other non-profit housing providers, I do not know what will.

Das Replies to Sheila: We Need “Affordable,” High-Density Housing in Car-Free Neighborhoods. Fast.

(Newsmakers Editor’s note: Earlier this week, Newsmakers published an open letter from former Mayor SheiIa Lodge to Supervisor Das Williams, critiquing his recent public comments, lambasting the city of Santa Barbara’s planning process as an obstacle to building new housing at the necessary speed and scope. He asked for equal space so today we’re publishing his response).

I wanted to take the time to respond to former Mayor Lodge’s letter to me about the housing crisis. I am heartened that my comments have prompted a community discussion because it’s clear to me that the housing crisis is one of the greatest threats our community faces today.

Let’s start with the facts. The housing market in Santa Barbara, which saw a 34 percent increase in median apartment rent price in just one year, is eliminating the ability for young people, our children and grandparents, and people of color, like myself and many others who work here, to live here.

This crisis is also threatening our environment and accelerating climate change by forcing our workforce to leave our community and make super-commutes in gaspowered cars.

For the first time in decades, oil drilling is no longer the biggest source of pollution in our County – that dubious honor has been claimed by oil burning, in the form of gas-powered transportation.

What changed?

Over the last 50 years, our community continued to grow more prosperous, as new forms of economic growth created more jobs. However, production of new homes all but stopped. Until recently, Santa Barbara did not approve a single new private apartment unit for 40 years.

But we all share the blame. SBCAG’s analysis found that the County, as well as all South Coast cities, are far behind the curve when it comes to approving enough housing to meet the needs of our residents.

AUD program is not enough. Now today, more rental housing is being built across all cities and the unincorporated area on the South Coast, thanks to initiatives like Santa Barbara’s AUD program, and new state legislation.

It may seem like the modest amount of new units aren’t making enough of a difference in prices. But it will take more than a few hundred units to correct the rental market after policymakers have starved the market of new housing for decades.

So we must make strides to meet our statemandated Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) housing goals, not try to thwart them.

Our best chance at meeting this need, and addressing the crisis of climate and affordability is high-density housing in downtowns and commercial areas near transit. We have the generational opportunity to create new neighborhoods that are carfree, and affordable to working people.

I understand the desire that Mayor Lodge expresses to bring opposing sides together in compromise. But the people who need our help most – young, working people, and seniors –are often not at the table for discussions about housing, and are left out of these community conversations and “compromises.”

From canvassing thousands of people in our community, I have learned two truths: Our community cares deeply about protecting our environment and knows that climate science is real. And the vast majority of people know just how bad the housing crisis has gotten, and want their elected leaders to act – and fast.

That’s why I support actions that expedite the construction of affordable housing. I am also skeptical of well-intentioned efforts by government that may inadvertently slow down or block new housing – or worse, be hijacked by a small minority that says “Not In My Backyard.”

A critical choice. As this crisis gets more intense each day, I believe our community and our government institutions face a crossroads.

Will we follow in the footsteps of our predecessors and stand up for our environment, as they did in the aftermath of the 1969 oil spill?

Will we give our kids and grandkids a fighting chance to continue living in this special community?

Or will we ignore this crisis, and carry on business as usual?

The choice is ours.

Goleta Beach County Park Emergency Operations

WHILE THE SANTA BARBARA COUNTY COMMUNITY SERVICES DEPARTMENT, PARKS DIVISION partially reopened Goleta Beach County Park to the public on February 9th, including parking, BBQ grills, beach access, and restrooms open from sunrise to sunset in the area between the park entrance and pier, Beach nourishment operations are expected to continue at the Park until the end of March. There will be a temporary pause in truck hauling starting February 14th, with hauling tentatively resuming by Monday, February 20th. Truck hauling has been paused temporarily while sediment at the source locations is excavated, stockpiled, and sorted to be inspected for beach compatibility. During the temporary pause in work, the park’s west end will remain closed. The material in this area is unstable and walking through the work site could lead to an injury.

The parking lot at the far east end and the pier also remain closed due to damage sustained during the January 2023 storms. While some repairs are underway and assessments of the pier are ongoing, it is anticipated it will be several weeks before the east parking lot and pier can reopen safely.

Work in this area will continue Monday through Saturday from 7am to 7pm. Park visitors should be aware of large trucks entering and exiting the park and keep away from the operation area. Walking through the work site could lead to an injury.

On Monday, January 9th, Santa Barbara County proclaimed a local emergency due to the January 2023 Storm impacts. Goleta Beach Park is an active emergency response site under this declaration and state and federal emergency declarations. Beach nourishment operations are conducted through emergency permits from state and federal agencies. People traveling on the Obern Trail Path should stay on the trail and use caution when traveling through the park due to operations near the park entrance. www.countyofsb.org/emergencybeachops

14th Annual Legacy Awards at SB Museum of Natural History

THE SANTA BARBARA MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY hosted its Leadership Circles of Giving Dinner on Thursday, January 19th to recognize the generosity of Leadership Circles Members and key donors who helped sustain the Museum and Sea Center during the past year. The Museum’s Legacy Awards recognize extraordinary contributions to the Museum and the natural world by community supporters, donors, and volunteers. This year, Elisabeth and Greg Fowler, Renee Grubb and Village Properties, and John O’Brien were honored for their generosity and dedication to the Museum. www.sbnature.org/leadership-circles

ELISABETH FOWLER and her husband Greg joined the Museum as Members 17 years ago. Greg, who was raised in the area joined the board, followed by Elisabeth two years later. She moved on to chair the board from 2014 to 2016, helping bring the Museum into its second century of service. In addition to generously giving her time to the Museum, Elisabeth and Greg have been incredibly generous philanthropists, both through their support of the Museum and the Santa Barbara community.

RENEE GRUBB founded Village Properties in 1996, and immediately began giving back to the community through her award-winning Teacher’s Fund, which helps local schools acquire needed supplies and books.

Three SB County Schools Presented 2023 California Exemplary Arts Education Award

IN RECOGNITION OF THEIR SUPPORT FOR THE ARTS, three Santa Barbara County schools have been presented with the 2023 California Exemplary Arts Education Award by the California Department of Education: Cold Spring School, Cold Spring School District; Franklin Elementary School, Santa Barbara Unified School District; and Los Berros Visual and Performing Arts Academy, Lompoc Unified School District.

“We are grateful to these schools for demonstrating a strong commitment to quality arts education for all students, and for promoting social-emotional well-being and increased academic performance through arts education,” said Santa Barbara County Superintendent of Schools Susan Salcido. “Imagination, wonder, and creativity are essential in our schools, and arts education provides a way for students to dream, aspire, and achieve.”

These schools will hold the title of an Exemplary Arts Education Award for three years. The award honors schools that provide at least three arts disciplines to students during the regular school day, as well as promote and maintain accessibility. www.sbceo.org

Anti-LGBTQ+ Protests Reach Santa Barbara

FIGUEROA STREET BECAME THE SITE FOR RISING TENSIONS ON THE MORNING OF FEBRUARY 11TH when locals lined up to protest Story Time with Miss Angel, located at The Crafter’s Library, a local crafting co-work space that regularly hosts the drag queen story time event. The incident is part of a growing trend of anti-LGBTQ+ threats and protests that have happened nationwide, but among the first to happen here in Santa Barbara.

Story Time with Miss Angel was founded by Miss Angel, also known as Angel D’Mon, who was inspired to start it in order to expose youth to inclusive, queer literature from oppressed voices. She has been reading stories at The Crafter’s Library for almost two years now. Miss Angel is a kindergarten teacher who has a Master’s in Education degree from Antioch University, as well as being a drag performer.

“I want to share what I didn’t have,” Miss Angel explained.

Crafter’s Library owner Andrew Rawls added, “It’s important to me to provide a space for Story Time with Miss Angel because, for the children who attend, all they see is an encouraging and loving adult in a gorgeous outfit telling them that they are perfect exactly the way they are.... Growing up in the closet in a conservative town, I would have loved to have had the chance to see an out and proud drag queen when I was little.”

Invited to take action by an email newsletter sent from the local GOP party, demonstrators carried signs with phrases such as “Keep Kids Innocent,” “Drag Queens Stay Away From Our Kids,” and “Crafter’s Library Stop Abusing Children,” despite the fact that the children present for Story Time were accompanied by their parents.

When asked why she decided to bring her children to the Story Time event, local mother Elizabeth Scharpf said, “I want to show them that everyone is different and should be loved the same. Our family is biracial and queer, and just as normal as everyone else. Love and acceptance are

ShelterBox Responds to Quake in Türkiye and Syria

SHELTERBOX, THE INTERNATIONAL DISASTER RELIEF ORGANIZATION, is providing response to the devastating earthquake in Southern Türkiye (Turkey) and Nothern Syria. In addition to having experience responding to earthquakes in Türkiye, they have been responding to the war in Syria for more than eleven years, and already had aid prepositioned for the region.

“These tragic earthquakes have caused historic destruction in an area already home to many displaced individuals,” said Kerri Murray, president of ShelterBox USA. “Thousands of buildings and homes have collapsed. As search and rescue crews continue to look for survivors, ShelterBox is sending an assessment team and working with our partners in the region to find the best way to help.”

The earthquakes are the worst to hit Türkiye in 100 years. The first 7.8 magnitude quake struck Türkiye close to the Syrian border in the early morning Monday local time, when many were sleeping. Just minutes later, a second 6.7 magnitude aftershock struck, followed by a third 7.5 magnitude quake in the same region. So far, the number killed is more than 20,000 people and thousands of buildings and homes have been rendered unsafe. Türkiye and Syria have declared a state of emergency and requested international assistance. Humanitarian efforts have been complicated by powerful aftershocks, below freezing temperatures, and snow. External factors such as these are likely to increase the humanitarian need in the region, which is why ShelterBox prepositions aid around the world.

what is important.”

Conversely, Caroline Abate, a demonstrator said, “There are only two genders. We need to work in harmony with reality, not in conflict with it. That is how progress is made. What we teach our children is extremely important. We must think carefully.”

Demonstrators confirmed that they are organizing another protest for the next drag story time event, which Rawls announced will be on March 4th.

GLAAD, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation reports that as of December 2022, there were 141 targeted anti-LGBTQ+ events across the nation.

Drag is an art form in which people express themselves by dressing up and performing as characters they have created. Drag is often performed by queer men who practice female impersonations and wear makeup, wigs, and heels, although there are no restrictions as to who can decide they want to become a drag queen, or how they can express themselves with the form.

“It’s a sad state of the country when political ideologies target the LGBT community. It’s not shocking—every decade there’s been some attempt at tearing down a community that is loving and inclusive,” commented Joseph Martorano.

Keep the Beat for SB Music Students

STARTING IN 2003, THE SANTA BARBARA EDUCATION FOUNDATION’S Keep the Beat Instrument Drive has ensured that every elementary school student in SB Unified learns to play an instrument as part of their school day curriculum. By raising funds and collecting instruments, they have been able to keep the beat by paying for instruction and providing students with an instrument for them to use for practice. Now for the fifth year, local musicians and music educators will broadcast live on 99.9 KTYD to raise community support for Keep the Beat.

“Every music student wants to play a particular instrument,” expressed La Colina Junior High School Music Teacher Stephen Hughes. “Maybe they sign up hoping to play the flute, trumpet, drums, or cello. When the schools receive instruments from the Santa Barbara Education Foundation, we can give them directly to our students, who can begin learning their dream instrument right away.”

Last year's Keep the Beat Instrument Drive, SBEF brought in $10,000 in funding and 140 donated instruments, including a vast range of instruments, including an electric ukulele and a didgeridoo from Australia. This year, SBEF hopes that the Keep the Beat Instrument Drive will raise enough to help repair and maintain instruments currently in use by students, and pay specialists to work with students to take their skills to the next level in free after-school programs like BRAVO and low-cost learning opportunities like the Nick Rail Summer Band Camp.

SBEF will also host instrument donation sites every Friday in February at Nick Rail Music (February 17) and La Cumbre Junior High School (February 24th). For more information on the Keep the Beat Instrument Drive, please visit keepthebeatsb.org or call 805-284-9125. www.keepthebeatsb.org

Interim Housing is a Key Tool in Getting People Off the Street

ABOLD AND SUCCESSFUL MOVE, the creation of interim housing has begun shifting shelterless individuals from the street into tiny homes provided by DignityMoves, an organization which has built a supportive coalition of local government agencies and nonprofits focused on housing. With nearly 3,500 area residents experiencing homelessness, creating affordable and safe housing has become an almost insurmountable task.

“Statewide, most municipalities are focusing the vast majority of their homelessness budgets on building permanent supportive housing,” explained DignityMoves CEO Elizabeth Funk. “While we certainly need a lot more PSH, the problem is that it is costing us over $600k per unit in big cities, it takes many years to build, and there usually isn’t enough available land to build those buildings. The rest is that over 70 percent of people experiencing homelessness in California are languishing on the streets on housing placement waiting lists.”

DignityMoves’s solution to this problem lies in “interim supportive housing,” or temporary housing structures that provide residents with individual units that have personal storage and locking doors. The only completed DignityMoves project is the one

on Santa Barbara Street, with 34 tiny homes. Three more projects will be opening between Santa Barbara and Goleta with a fourth in Santa Maria—all in 2023.

“Generally, residents stay an average of six months and up to two years,” said Funk. “Interim Supportive Housing is not intended to be a long-term solution; it is a place where people can come in off of the streets and out of encampments and get stabilized while they determine their next more permanent step.”

Currently, 15 of the 33 residents of the DM Santa Barbara Street Village have graduated out of the program and into stable housing. That has made space for additional homeless people to move in (which they have).

With the help of SB County, Doctors Without Walls, SB ACT, The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission, and Good Samaritan Shelter, which operates the Santa Barbara Village Shelter facility, DignityMoves has been able to adequately address the legal, medical, and hunger needs of the residents in their facility. DignityMoves also provides an Intensive Case Manager to all residents to assist them with getting to a point where they are able to house and provide for themselves.

Between July-December 2022, eleven of the 34 residents had secured some form of employment, and three were able to transition into a more permanent housing space.

Compared to the $600k per unit for PSH, the pre-fabricated modular units at the Santa Barbara Village cost only $50k per unit. They were also designed to seamlessly blend in with the local architectural look and feel of Santa Barbara. They address what they call the “Four P’s, which are privacy, pets, partners, and possessions. Residents can bring pets and partners with them to the Santa Barbara Village, and they can feel secure that their personal belongings will stay safe.

“Many regions identify and measure the size of their unsheltered populations and the number of rooms they need, but they don’t have realistic plans for how to build the housing those plans call for,” said Funk. “Santa Barbara is showing that with courageous government leadership and a generous community, together this problem really can be solved.” www.dignitymoves.org

Shot In The Arm A Bold Look at America’s Vaccine Hesitancy

WHEN THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC BROKE OUT in the middle of filming a documentary on rising measles cases, director Scott Hamilton Kennedy realized he was in a unique position to address vaccine hesitancy. Drawing from years of conversations with scientific experts, health officials, nurses, concerned parents, and even antivaccination activists, Kennedy crafted Shot In The Arm, a searing examination of the roots of vaccine hesitancy, the spread of exploitative misinformation, and how viewers can combat this issue with understanding and education.

The documentary will screen at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Saturday, February 18th, at 6pm in the Metro 4 Theatre, Auditorium #4.

Kennedy shared with VOICE that in approaching the documentary and its many nuances, he focused on highlighting the difference between being skeptical versus cynical.

“Skeptical, going into the scientific method, is just a beautiful word and such an important word for how we make decisions as scientists, as parents, as educators,” said Kennedy. “Be skeptical of something, look for the evidence, decide if your skepticism was founded... But if the evidence shows you that you shouldn’t be skeptical anymore, but you continue to be skeptical, or even denialist, that’s really cynical.”

He added that in our current social and political climate, many individuals are unfortunately resorting to cynicism as a means of understanding their surroundings.

“I want to live in a world that is extremely skeptical, and teach my daughters how to use the scientific method to be skeptical, but not cynical,” added Kennedy.

Shot In The Arm opens with a 2019 measles outbreak in New York City’s Orthodox Jewish community, which was caused by parents’ refusal to give their children the MMR vaccine. This, combined with information on how anti-vaccine activist Andrew Wakefield’s debunked study spurred fears of vaccines causing autism, provides viewers with the necessary background to explore how the anti-vaccine movement expanded during the pandemic — culminating with the anti-vaccine demonstration that took place mere miles away from the attempted insurrection on January 6th, 2021.

Interviews largely shape the documentary’s trajectory, allowing viewers to directly hear the voices shaping this national conversation and develop their own understanding. This includes experts such as Dr. Anthony Fauci, vaccine specialist Dr. Paul A. Offit, and pediatrician and vaccine developer Dr. Peter J. Hotez, as well as examples of anti-vaccine rhetoric circulating on social media and an interview with anti-vaccine activist Robert Kennedy, Jr.

This commentary is punctuated by testimonies of parents on both sides of the issue, illustrating how well-intentioned individuals can be swayed by

misinformation and a lack of scientific literacy. The film also highlights how the false rhetoric of vaccines causing autism not only perpetuates misinformation but also stigmatizes children with autism and their families.

Viewers are left with a compelling documentary that emphasizes the importance, safety, and effectiveness of vaccines, without vilifying those parents who remain uncertain.

“As an educator, it’s hard for me to ever see someone as an enemy if they just don’t understand something,” explained astrophysicist and science communicator Neil deGrasse Tyson, who acted as the film’s script consultant and Executive Producer. “It’s the role of an educator to enlighten, to share knowledge and wisdom and insight wherever we can, and to do it in ways that are effective.”

Creating Behind-the-ScenesMagicwith the Artisans

THE ARLINGTON THEATER ROARED WITH EXCITEMENT

on February 13th at the ninth annual Variety Artisans Awards, a night dedicated to honoring the talented artists who created dazzling costumes, productions, music, and more for this year’s most-celebrated films.

“Tonight is all about the behindthe-scenes magicians that make movies possible,” exclaimed SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling in his introduction.

Jazz Tangcay, Variety’s Senior Artisans Editor, moderated the oneon-one and panel conversations with the artisans, diving deep into their passionate, creative processes. The awardees included: M.M. Keeravaani (RRR “Naatu Naatu” songwriter), Markus Stemler (All Quiet on the Western Front sound designer); Son Lux’s Ryan Lott (Everything Everywhere All at Once composer), Paul Rogers (Everything Everywhere All at Once composer), Catherine Martin (Elvis costume designer), Florencia Martin (Babylon production designer), Claudio Miranda (Top Gun: Maverick cinematographer), Adrien Morot (The Whale hairstylist and make-up artist), and Eric Saindon (Avatar: The Way of Water VFX artist).

M.M. Keeravaani charmed the audience with his discussion on collaborating with S.S. Rajamouli to create the Golden Globe award-winning song Naatu Naatu, which made audiences want

Additionally, Paul Rogers and Ryan Lott both shared their initial emotional reactions to the Daniels’ Everything Everywhere All at Once script and discussed the long hours of collaboration that went into the heartfelt film. Rogers emphasized the painful process of screening rough edits of the film every two weeks, while Lott brought laughter to the theater in telling the Daniels’ first assignment for composer trio Son Lux: a hot dog courtship song.

Relating the intense research and hard work behind Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, Catherine Martin spoke about the challenges of recreating Elvis’ iconic outfits for actor Austin

Butler. She gave credit to Butler’s fantastic portrayal of the rock-androll king for bringing life to the costumes.

“Without the actor, it’s just leather pants,” Martin chuckled.

On the set of another big-budget film, Florencia Martin discussed designing Damien Chazelle’s vision, from scouting locations to building over a hundred different sets for Babylon’s early 1920s Los Angeles backdrop.

At the end of the night, Oscarwinning set designers Sandy and David Wesco presented awards to the honorees.

“From our cinema seats or sofas, you’ve propelled us into the future and back in time, given us the vertigo of flight, caused solidarity with characters fighting against enormous odds, and rolled us out of those same seats with laughter,” said Sandy. “The enthusiast in us is always delighted by glimpses behind the curtain at contributions that make movie magic.”

SBIFF American Riviera Award

Brendan Fraser Honored

Courtney Poon / Special to VOICE

ON VALENTINE’S DAY, Brendan Fraser filled the Arlington Theater with love as he received the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s American Riviera Award.

Endearing the audience with his genuineness and warmth, Fraser shared his journey as an actor from his early film Encino Man to his latest and first Oscar-nominated performance in The Whale. At the end of the evening, esteemed actress Sarah Michelle Gellar presented the American Riviera award to Fraser.

In a conversation with Deadline Awards Columnist and Chief Film Critic Pete Hammond, Fraser discussed his innate

desire to perform in theater at a young age. Showcasing his physical comedy skills, Fraser acted out stories from the set of George of the Jungle, while touching upon his more serious dramas including Social Ties.

Fraser also spoke about the important themes in The Whale, voicing, “I think that it’s a film that always had the intention to change hearts and minds.”

Following the discussion, Gellar thanked Fraser for his tremendous body of work.

“Brendan, the person, has the same adventures and heart that you saw in The Mummy,” said Gellar. “And like Charlie in The Whale, the same desperate longing to do the right thing for the people that he loves.”

Angela Bassett Accepts Montecito Award

on the evening of February 9th to receive the Montecito Award at the 38th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Bassett, who also recently received an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, has delivered some of the most embodied and powerful on-screen performances since 1985. Bassett, joined by SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling, used the opportunity to speak to her experience as a Black woman in the entertainment industry and how she has helped pave the way for generations of artists who have followed in her footsteps.

When Durling asked Bassett to comment on what it was like to, grow up without having many Black role models on screen, she shared, “Growing up in St. Petersburg, Florida, when we would turn on Ed Sullivan on Sunday night and the Supremes were on, we would literally walk right outside and say, ‘Black people on TV!’ We were so thrilled to see that representation. You look for that. Whenever it came, it was like a nurturing meal.”

Over the course of the night, clips played of Bassett’s most

notable performances and Durling invited her to share her memories and insight into the creation of the films. Bassett smiled in fond recollection as she spoke of experiences such as letting go of her Tina Turner performance once filming for What’s Love Got To Do With It ended, what it was like trying to keep up with the fiery Denzel Washington in Malcom X, or how she improvised her monologue during her iconic closet scene in Waiting to Exhale. The evening ended with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director, Ryan Coogler, thanking Bassett for the impact that her on screen presence has had on him and how she contributed to his lifelong love for the medium.

“To be able to offer the representation that I longed for is a dream come true,” said Bassett.

Jamie Lee Curtis Accepts Maltin Modern Master Award

SPARKING LAUGHTER AND REFLECTION with her signature candor, actress Jamie Lee Curtis wowed SBIFF guests on Saturday, February 11th as she accepted the festival’s highest honor, the Maltin Modern Master Award. In a whirlwind conversation led by the award’s namesake, film critic Leonard Maltin, Curtis transported guests on a tour of her expansive acting career, from her Halloween debut to her Oscar-nominated role in Everything Everywhere All at Once

“I like the phrase ‘chop wood, carry water,’” Curtis told VOICE on the red carpet when asked about how she is celebrating her Oscar nomination. “I just try not to focus on the show business part and just try to be a part of my family and my friends. I’m not drawn in by all of the show business — or ‘show off’ business stuff.”

Unapologetically herself, Curtis engaged with

the audience with ease and spunk, peppering moments between film clips with insightful behind-the-scenes anecdotes. Fans ranging from excited teenagers to seasoned cinephiles cheered as she explained how John Cleese wrote her role in A Fish Named Wanda with her in mind, and how she insisted on the presence of a lightbox for her iconic True Lies interrogation scene. She also discussed her performance as the neglected IRS inspector Deirdre in Everything Everywhere All at Once, pointing out that she insisted on Deirdre having beautiful nails because she

felt that her manicure sessions “were the only time every three weeks that someone touched her.”

Through it all, Curtis emphasized the role her family and friends play in her personal and professional life, highlighting how her friendship with director John Carpenter launched her career and how Arnold Schwarzenegger helped ensure she got a top billing for the film True Lies. A family celebration then took place onstage as actor Christopher Guest, Curtis’ husband of almost 40 years, presented her with the Maltin Modern Master Award.

Cate Blanchett Honored as Outstanding Performer Of The Year

PERHAPS THE GREATEST ACTING

Mid-Fest Documentaries and Features

THE FESTIVAL’S DIVERSE OFFERINGS led the way into a fascinating opening week of screenings, with a range of subject matter in narrative films and intriguing documentaries.

TALENT

OF HER GENERATION,

Cate Blanchett was honored Friday night, February 10th, at the historic Arlington Theatre. Befitting a queen of the screen, and a formidable stage star in her native Australia, Blanchett was greeted by throngs of fans waiting to see her as she stepped out of a limousine in front of the marquee. The evening of celebration is bound to be a highlight of the 2023 Festival and the honor marks Blanchett’s third such honor from this festival. Emcee Scott Feinberg from the Hollywood Reporter followed a strict timeline of her career after welcoming remarks from Fest Director Roger Durling and a montage of film clips set to the dynamic song from Katy Perry, Roar a fitting for this outstanding actress, who this year, provided a compelling performance in Todd Field’s Tár. With her multi-faceted portrayal of an elite female conductor who faces professional and personal challenges, Blanchett has demonstrated once again that she can develop a credibility that few screen performers can match.

Diving deep into the backdrop of the emergence of her screen acting career, the audience learned that she was interested in the visual arts, yet through a series of circumstances became a director of student plays. That led to an audition to acceptance into Australia’s National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA) and being appreciated in leading roles in plays by David Mamet, Electra in Sophocles' play of the same name, and playing Ophelia in Hamlet starring Geofrey Rush. She also recounted becoming a reader for a key film casting director, eventually finding a breakthrough in films such as Gillian Armstrong’s Oscar and Lucinda and cast in the title role in Shekhar Kapur’s historical drama Elizabeth, catapulting her to the first rank of film actresses.

This took place amidst an interplay of film clips from her milestone movies, including The Talented Mr. Ripley, Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy as Galadriel, Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator, Notes on a Scandal opposite Judy Dench, I’m Not There, playing an early sixties version of Bob Dylan, her award-winning role in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine (heavily informed by her portrayal onstage as Blanche in Streetcar Named Desire), Todd Hayne’s Carol, as well as other projects. In the evening’s roll-out, she was instructive, exuberant, and direct. Onstage she mentioned, “My first love is theatre…what I love about it is that you have a direct relationship to the audience, the audience absolutely impacts how the evening unfolds – the atmosphere, the mood, the textures of a moments change according to the audience. It’s not a passive experience.”

We also learned that Blanchett is an environmental activist in regard to the challenges of climate change. She also headed up the Sydney Theatre Company alongside her husband Andrew Upton for several years. She is the mother of four children, and is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations. As an executive producer, she is helping to launch such films as Shayda, about Iranian families living abroad, starring Zar Amir-Ebrahimi (Holy Spider) which recently won the audience award at January’s Sundance Film Festival for their World Cinema Dramatic Competition.

In Tár, director Todd Field’s first project in 16 years, playing a conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic, Blanchett was surrounded by an outstanding cast including Noémie Merlant, Nina Hoss, Julian Glover, and Mark Strong. She was also part of a labyrinth of a screenplay, an intriguing investigation of the boundaries and fragility of fame in the classical music industry. The film has universal themes of unrepentant pride and betrayals in an elite and sometimes vicious professional context. Blanchett takes us on a journey of downbeat downfall, and her character of Lydia Tár is fascinating. This performance may be one of her roles that will be appreciated in decades ahead, it's so fine-tuned and believable, and a credit to her hard work. Of that project she recalled, “My character Lydia is obsessed with Legacy, and Legacy is something I don’t think about…the role swallowed me whole, but it was a great experience – but really, really difficult… that's what was so great about doing Tár, because it had that performance element.”

Presenting the award, Director Todd Field very carefully extolled Blanchett's accomplishments not only as an actress but as a global citizen of good works and as a family oriented person. Blanchett was clearly humbled at Field’s descriptions and as before, extremely grateful for the film-loving audiences that filled the farthest reaches of the theatre. She may win an Oscar, and she has won many awards for her unique risk-taking approach to a diverse range of roles, and on this night she definitely won over the gathered audience, who gave her multiple standing ovations.

On the fictional-narrative front, there was a based-on-real life film from Denmark, Tove’s Room, adapted from playwright Jakob Weis's stage play from 2017. The film version, some years later is directed by Martin Zandvliet.

The movie version is set in a single room, the library of an under-appreciated female poet and novelist. Burdened with drug addiction, sexual obsessions, and outrageous behavior, described, not shown, the main character asserts her individuality amongst her emotionally abusive husband and other literary elites that come to call at her lair of dysfunction. The film is reminiscent of Mike Nichol’s Who’s Afraid of Virginial Wolf but definitely smuttier in moments. An exploration of the boundaries and penalties of literary fame in a restrictive society, the film shows overtly the disruptive personality of Tove Ditlevsen.

The lead actress, who vividly portrayed Tove in all her inglorious quirks, Paprika Steen was on hand to greet audiences during screenings. Not a perfect movie by any means as the atmosphere seemed overly claustrophobic and cloying, but the story provided a window into the life and times of an outrageously flamboyant literary figure who recently is becoming more appreciated. The central figure, Tove Ditlevsen committed suicide in early 1970s and this story suggests the turbulent life and times of this pre-feminist writer. Ditlevsen may be a Danish version of Joan Didion, yet time will develop that theory. Imperfect, yet fascinating and it's a good example of films that audiences may find at film festivals but nowhere else.

Feature documentaries noteworthy for the opening week must include an investigation of the John Schlesinger film from 1969, Midnight Cowboy. Helmed by Nancy Buirski, Desperate Souls, Dark City and The Legend of Midnight Cowboy, the film premiered at the Venice Film Festival this year and provides an interesting look back at the genesis of the 1969 Best Picture Winner as well as the filmmaking context.

The documentary features compelling interviews with lead actor Jon Voight who provides gripping recollections on why his work in the film may be his zenith of artistic achievements within his long and award-winning career. The documentary also informs on the techniques that director John Schlesinger was so adept at, since he had a history of documenting British urban life of the early sixties.

The film also explores taboo subject matter for the late sixties, homosexual lifestyles within the USA. Desperate Souls points to the shockingly restrictive attitudes of the time when it was written, accepted by a studio, shot, produced, and released. Midnight Cowboy continues to be an enigma and features legendary portrayals by the two lead actors, Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight. The film is an example that influenced other projects at the time that unflinchingly looked at poverty with a direct perspective, and an appreciation of the darker aspects of the American Dream.

Another documentary with vital subject matter was The Right to Read, from director Jenny Mackenzie within the Social Justice sidebar of films. Although overly long, the film shows the struggle of AfricanAmerican communities to access successful reading skill approaches in school districts across the USA. The film was co-produced by actor LeVar Burton (Star Trek, The Next Generation) and offers the key concept of reading skills needed to navigate the current age of information.

Soul of the Ocean directed by Howard Hall is a beautifully shot under the sea documentary that really shows the symbiotic relationship between varying species of ocean life. The film rarely grapples with environmental concerns but in a way celebrates the most exquisite whales, sharks, fish, shrimp, and mollusks that populate the crevices of coral reefs and the surrounding expanse of the reef architecture. The visuals are stunning without exception, but the narration from celebrated British actor Jonathan Pryce is at times tepid and repetitive. To watch the film is to gain some initial information on how biodiversity works. An underlying theme of reef protection is implied, but the fascinating cinematography and the vast scale of the precious blue environment dominated.

UCSB LAUNCH PAD Presents SHE WOLF Margaret of Anjou

Breathing new life into one of history’s and Shakespeare’s most dynamic women, the UCSB Department of Theater/Dance will present SHE WOLF, Margaret of Anjou at UCSB’s Performing Arts Theater at 7:30pm on Wednesday, February 22nd. Written by playwright Katie Bender and directed by Artistic Director Risa Brainin, the play is a part of UCBS’s play development program, LAUNCH PAD, meaning that no two nights will be performed the same way. Rather, the play will keep developing each day, exploring and incorporating new elements of Margaret’s story.

“The issues Margaret was dealing with way back in the 1400s - civil unrest, extreme inequality, xenophobia, misogyny, the plague - are all part of our current national conversation,” said Bender. “Margaret was married to Henry VI in an effort to broker a peace, only to be posthumously written off as a powerhungry ‘she wolf’ whose reign brought the country to war.”

Performances continue through March 5th, for tickets ($13-19) visit www.theaterdance.ucsb.edu

UCSB LAUNCH PAD presenta

SHE WOLF Margaret of Anjou

Dando nueva vida a una de las mujeres más dinámicas de la historia y de Shakespeare, el Departamento de Teatro/Danza de UCSB presentará SHE WOLF, Margaret of Anjou en el Performing Arts Theater de UCSB a las 7:30 pm el miércoles, 22 de febrero. Escrita por la dramaturga Katie Bender y dirigida por la directora artística Risa Brainin, la obra es parte del programa de desarrollo de obras de UCSB, LAUNCH PAD, lo que significa que no se representarán dos noches de la misma manera. Más bien, la obra seguirá desarrollándose cada día, explorando e incorporando nuevos elementos de la historia de Margaret. “Los problemas que enfrentaba Margaret allá por el siglo XV (disturbios civiles, desigualdad extrema, xenofobia, misoginia, la peste) son parte de nuestra conversación nacional actual,” dijo Bender. "Margaret se casó con Enrique VI en un esfuerzo por negociar la paz, solo para ser descartada póstumamente como una 'loba' hambrienta de poder cuyo reinado llevó al país a la guerra."

Las funciones continúan hasta el 5 de marzo, para boletos ($13-19) visita www.theaterdance.ucsb.edu

Bookworm Corner: Sulwe

PART MAGICAL FABLE, PART COMING-OF-AGE STORY, Sulwe by actress and writer Lupita Nyong'o offers a powerful reminder that everyone possesses their own inherent beauty. Based in part on Nyong'o’s own experiences growing up in Kenya with skin that was far darker than her peers, Sulwe follows a young girl as she learns to love her skin that is “the color of midnight.”

The book opens on Sulwe, who feels self-conscious about how much darker her skin is in comparison to her family members. At school, her lighter-skinned sister is called by pleasant nicknames such as “sunshine,” and finds it easy to make friends. Meanwhile, Sulwe feels hurt after being called names such as “night,” and even resorts to futile efforts to lighten her skin with makeup.

in Healing Justice Santa Barbara’s Chocolate Baby Story Time virtual read-aloud series. Its intimate and magical themes are heightened by Vashti Harrison’s gorgeous illustrations, filling the book’s pages with images of Black people who are each beautiful in their own unique way. By pairing the allegory of the Night and Day sisters with Sulwe’s inner conflicts, students are encouraged to develop critical reading skills as well as explore the concepts of beauty standards, intolerance, and colorism.

Sulwe’s mother discovers her daughter’s anxieties, comforting her by reminding her that Sulwe means “star” in their language, Luo. She continues by emphasizing that real beauty is not contingent on others’ opinions, but comes from one’s heart and mind. That night, Sulwe dreams that a shooting star whisks her away into the sky, telling her the story of how Night once ran away because she did not feel as beautiful as her sister, Day. However, Night ultimately realized that just because her beauty was different, it was not less valuable, and that people loved her for who she was. Sulwe wakes up in the morning feeling empowered and happy in her skin.

Published in 2019, this delightful picture book has become a popular tool for teaching young readers about the issue of colorism and self-acceptance, even being featured

Unfortunately, Sulwe has more recently garnered attention for being included among the books under review by Florida public school systems, as conservative districts work to censor discussions of critical race theory in classrooms. As Black History Month continues, Sulwe remains an uplifting read that can not only help students who may feel like Sulwe learn to love themselves, but teach all readers the importance of treating everyone with respect and understanding that our individual differences are what make us beautiful.

New Year Growth Looking Better

OF JANUARY’S GANGBUSTER UNEMPLOYMENT

REPORT of 517,000 new payroll jobs and the unemployment rate decline to an all-time low of 3.4 percent, consensus is growing that the U.S. may avoid a recession.

One indicator of a more optimistic outcome is the Atlanta Federal Reserve GDPNow estimate of economic growth that I have been reporting. It has been close to correct over the past two quarters. For instance, it predicted 3.2 percent growth for Q4 2022 and the official final estimate of Q4 from the US Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) came in at 2.9 percent.

other supply constraints so that U.S. consumers continue to buy cheaper foreign goods, which is also holding down inflation.

The New York Fed has a new Global Supply Chain Pressure Index that tells us supply prices have eased substantially as Asian countries are recovering quickly. For instance, Chinese imports have recovered, as they work out of their COVID-induced slowdown.

Bank of America and Goldman Sachs fund managers are finding their clients also see less chance of a recession, as reported on MarketWatch.

It is predicting 2.2 percent growth for the first quarter 2023, when last year’s first and second quarter growth was negative, though there was no recession.

The GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the first quarter of 2023 is 2.2 percent on February 8th, up from 2.1 percent on February 7th.

Why is the Atlanta Fed’s GDPNow estimate of Q1 2023 so optimistic?

Its estimate highlighted increased foreign trade because supply chains have been able to circumvent the Ukraine war and a host of

The B of A’s latest global fund manager survey found forecasts of a recession have massively dropped since its November 2022 peak, where 77 percent of fund managers said a recession was likely, to 24 percent in February.

“Most fund managers are optimistic on inflation; 83 percent anticipate lower global CPI in the next year and 47 percent expect to see lower short-term rates in the next twelve months, the most since March 2020,” said the B of A survey.

Similarly, Goldman Sachs research analysts led by David Kostin, said in a client note on Tuesday that companies in the Russell 3000 index are talking less about an oncoming recession. Their analysis of corporate earnings

calls found just twelve percent mentioning the “R word.”

Speaking of inflation, the well-regarded New York Fed’s consumer expectations report shows inflation expectations in particular ‘well anchored’, i.e., consumers are expecting no surprises.

“Median inflation expectations remained unchanged at the one-year-ahead horizon,” said the NYFed, “decreased by 0.2 percentage point at the three-year-ahead horizon, and increased by 0.1 percentage point at the five-year-ahead horizon, to 5.0 percent, 2.7 percent, and 2.5 percent, respectively.”

So we still have an inflation problem. U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen last week said she saw a path for avoiding a U.S. recession, with inflation coming down significantly and the economy remaining strong, given the strength of the U.S. labor market.

“You don’t have a recession when you have 500,000 jobs and the lowest unemployment rate in more than 50 years,” Yellen told ABC’s Good Morning America program.

Who is right in this crazy year? The developed world has proved resilient in easing supply chains, which will bring down inflation even faster.

It’s Quiet, But Work Continues

SUPER BOWL SUNDAY WAS ONE STRANGE DAY down at the harbor. Parking spots available everywhere…something that couldn’t be said for visitors, shoppers, boaters, and diners. The entire place was close to empty! What’s up with that?

Einstein’s brain wasn’t needed to figure that out…the weather at the harbor was what’s considered in California to be really cold with a 15 knot wind that lowered the temperature by a hefty margin. Most folks were nestled happily in front of their TVs for the Super Bowl festivities noshing on chicken wings, potato chips, popcorn, and various forms of libation to wash it down. Concurrently, the famed Santa Barbara International Film Festival was going on with film lovers from all over the globe at home in the darkness of theaters all over town. This was one busy weekend!

Down parka zipped up to my ears, I wandered down the normally busy alleyway into the Yacht Club parking lot to see what had happened since my last visit. I was fortunate enough to run into Staff Commodore Andra Escola who shared what she knew. “Those plastic sleeves you see here in the parking lot will be used to reinforce the pilings after the storms wiped out the boat yard and swept everything on the beach out to sea. The utilities, plumbing, and other essentials damaged by the high surf are well underway to being back in operating condition.”

She explained that with the disappearance of the sand, an opportunity presented itself to reinforce the pilings in preparation for the next 50 years. “The Yacht Club will be open soon,” she assured me.

Escola not only explained what was happening with the construction at the club, but the next day I received a photo of workers actually doing the job!

Speaking of construction along the waterfront, there seems to be some serious work being done on East Beach across from the Andree Clark Bird Refuge and around the lake itself. Driving past the tennis courts on Cabrillo Boulevard I realized I’d been looking at orange fencing and large machinery for quite some time on both sides of the road. Assuming that the Waterfront Department was the overseer, Director Mike Wiltshire informed me that this project was actually under the auspices of Santa Barbara City Parks and Recreation. Shows you what I know!

Apparently poor water quality conditions and strong odors at the Bird Refuge have been problematic since the 1930s, as most of us have discovered. The accumulation of nutrients, lack of flushing storm events, drought, bacteria, and other conditions have created the unpleasant smell. The Creeks Division collected several years of data and potential techniques for improving water quality which resulted in a planned restoration project.

The Bird Refuge Restoration

Project is now underway, thus the barriers on the beach and the machinery and materials. Naturally the storms of the last weeks have delayed completion, but it is scheduled to be completed early this year. Included in the project is the replacement of the weir gate at Cabrillo Boulevard with an improved design, construction of an upstream treatment wetland at the Municipal Tennis Courts on Old Coast Highway, restoration of habitat around the lake with the installation of native plants and trees, and restoration of dune and salt marsh habitats at the mouth of the Bird Refuge on East Beach.

All this work is a testament to a small part of the City of Santa Barbara’s continuing improvement projects, although it isn’t always easy to keep up as there is always so much going on. So, even when it seems quiet around town, it’s actually NOT!

Grace Fisher Inclusive Arts Clubhouse

Where Creativity Meets Accessibility

APPRECIATING THE PERSONAL IMPACT

ART, MUSIC, AND DANCE can make on a person’s life, local activist Grace Fisher has launched the Grace Fisher Inclusive Arts Clubhouse in La Cumbre Plaza. Hosted through the Grace Fisher Foundation nonprofit organization, this welcoming gathering place provides free classes for children and young adults with disabilities to explore their creativity.

“I think art and music is something that everyone can connect to,” said Fisher. “I hope this space is a place where everyone can come regardless of ability and feel included

Art and music have played a crucial role in Fisher’s life. After a virus left her paralyzed from the neck down at the age of 17, Fisher began practicing adaptive art and music therapy. In 2016, she established the Grace Fisher Foundation to ensure children with disabilities also experienced access to arts programming and the chance to express themselves. Since then, the foundation has touched the lives of many Santa Barbara children and their families and engaged with the larger community through events such as annual Winter Music Showcase benefit concerts.

Now, following years of local support and outreach, Fisher has opened the Inclusive Arts Clubhouse in La Cumbre Plaza. With class participation made free through the nonprofit, the clubhouse’s initial programming will include mixed-media art classes, adaptive dance classes, and a regular drum circle session, with plans for future music therapy programming to help individuals one-on-one.

“Music therapy was really helpful for me in rehab and I know that for kids and people with cognitive disabilities, it can really be a way for

them to connect with something,” said Fisher. “Communication through music is something that’s really powerful.”

To ensure participants receive the support they need, each class will be taught by professionals from the community. Fisher is also working with an occupational therapist to structure and maximize the clubhouse programming’s accessibility.

The clubhouse’s vibrant interior reflects this spirit, featuring bright paintings, string lights, a whimsical chandelier, a spacious dance studio space, a music corner, and more. There is also a retail storefront, where visitors can purchase Fisher’s art as well as t-shirts, mugs, and more with designs promoting inclusivity. These products are from the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, a local nonprofit working to build Santa Barbara’s first fully inclusive playground.

“I want it to be exciting and a magical place when you walk in the doors,” said Fisher. “I want just any kid, even if they don’t have a disability, to come in and explore and just find out about people in wheelchairs — we’re not that much different than everyone else.”

While the clubhouse’s official grand opening is scheduled for March, the space has already experienced a “soft opening” and its first fundraising event. On Saturday, February 11th, dozens of community members visited the space for a “Spread the Love” FUNdraiser, supporting Fisher’s family friend April Medina-Watson who has been diagnosed with ALS. Live music filled the space as guests enjoyed arts and crafts, refreshments, and the chance to explore the clubhouse.

Four’s a Charm!

PACKING THE PUNCH of four new exhibition openings at once, the Art, Design & Architecture Museum will be the place to explore next weekend as Christopher Suarez - ESPÍRITUTECTUAL, On Famous Women, 1400 – 1700, Genius Loci: Domesticity and Identity in Southern California, and Sandy Rodriguez — Unfolding Histories: 200 Years of Resistance open on Saturday, February 25th with a reception from 5:30 to 7:30pm. The first three of these exhibitions will be on view through May 7th and Unfolding Histories through March 3rd, 2024.

The Museum continues its history of providing space for art of resistance and inclusion, as well as exhibitions from their permanent collections.

ESPÍRITUTECTUAL, explores the strip mall—a quintessentially Southern Californian architectural form—as the epicenter for the cultivation of community and culture.

In Unfolding Histories, Sandy Rodriguez maps ongoing cycles of violence on communities of color by blending historical and recent events. This exhibition chronicles two hundred years of uprisings in Central California, including the 1824 Chumash Revolt, and maps sites of resistance to the present.

On Famous Women celebrates illustrious women through 16th- and 17th-century paintings, engravings, and Renaissance portrait medals. Sourced from the Museum’s permanent collections, On Famous Women, 1400–1700 is organized by the AD&A Museum, and curated by guest curator Sophia Quach McCabe, PhD, and features a recent gift by William and Nyna Mahan.

Drawn from the Architecture and Design Collection, Genius Loci: Domesticity and Identity in Southern California features a selection of ten singlefamily home projects that convey the effervescent creativity permeating Southern California’s architectural production during the 20th century.

See it all on February 25th! - K.M.
