WHAT IS SANTA BARBARA SPEAKS?
We're a youth-run, youth-oriented 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to giving teenagers a place to spread their voice. We produce community-wide events, from conferences to seminars to open mic nights and more.
Our newest project:
We host annual events to showcase student voices, but as we grow, we decided to create a new outlet for local teens to express their creativity — through creative story telling, poetry, painting, and more.
A COLLECTIVE SOUND
On Friday, June 1st students around Santa Barbara joined us at the Sandbox Santa Barbara for live music performed by local teens, and a student art showcase that included paintings, drawings, and even sculptures.
