CANCELLED Environmental Justice and Indigenous Communities
UCSB Arts & Lectures has been carefully following the rapidly-changing news about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). On March 11, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that California public health officials issued an updated policy on large gatherings to protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19. In accordance with this announcement and in conjunction with UC Santa Barbara’s decision to limit campus operations, UCSB Arts & Lectures has canceled or postponed all upcoming events through April 26, 2020. We will keep patrons informed if we are able to reschedule these events in the future.
This decision has been made with the safety and health of our community as our top priority. We know this unprecedented action will be disappointing to our audiences and artists, as it is to us. However, the well-being of our students, patrons, artists, staff members and community is paramount during this time. We hope these actions will make a meaningful difference as we all face this difficult situation together.
