Out of Mud and Ashes — Reflections on Local Tragedies Expressed in Art Forms

OPUS Archives and Research Center will present Out of the Mud and Ashes, 7:30 p.m. Oct. 6 at the Lobero Theatre, featuring Santa Barbara and Ventura County artists.

OPUS Archives has given more than a dozen grants to local artists to conceive and perform their creative expressions around the Thomas Fire and mudflows.

The soulful performances will span multiple mediums including dance, music, photography, drama, poetry and video.

Tickets are $15-$40 and may be purchased via the Lobero Theatre website, lobero.org. Proceeds from ticket sales will help fund next year’s New Mythos grants.

Due to the sensitive nature of the subject matter, this event may not be suitable for all audiences.

OPUS Archives and Research Center, a nonprofit in Montecito, is a center for the advancement of the fields of depth psychology, mythology and the humanities. OPUS offers scholarships, educational programs, and research access to the collections.

The archives feature works of scholars James Hillman, Joseph Campbell, Marija Gimbutas, Jane Hollister Wheelwright and Joseph Wheelwright, Marion Woodman and Christine Downing.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
