Education Outreach Overview

The Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation is a respected funder and partner in performing arts education for the greater Santa Barbara area. One of the most important parts of our mission is to ensure that everyone has access to music — whether by playing or by listening. In addition to hosting concerts, the Bowl invests in future artists and audiences by supporting performing arts education for youth through our Education Outreach initiative.

Education Outreach includes a broad array of programs, listed below, that provide critical resources for expanding youth access to performing arts, including symposiums, arts advocacy, mentorship, and needs-based financial support for arts education programs.

We offer a range of opportunities for donors to support Education Outreach including investing in community programs and partnerships, investing in the Education Outreach Sustainer Fund to insure the longevity of this impactful program, or investing in the Bowl's future audiences and artists through the Community Ticket Subsidy and Instrument Fund.
