  • Eqogo - Building Tech for the Culture of Conscious Consumption

    60 min | Altar of Air

    We all sense the pains on our environment and want to make a positive impact in our world. When we vote with our dollar, change happens. Here is Santa Barbara, there is a movement starting to create a culture around better practices by using a unique tool to identify the best in the goods we acquire. This workshop shares the story of a local start-up finding its way in complexity of this issue and celebrates that it all starts with concern, conversation and action.

  • Drawing from Story to Vision

    105 min | Art Temple

    This workshop explores the artistic process of taking story into tangible imagery. We will play with suspending disbelief through framing the familiar against the fantastic. By using observation, convention and reference, the unfamiliar can be made REAL. Bring your ideas, visions of surrealism, fantasy, vision and story.. we will make them come to life.
