The Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative works to maintain the CAW as a "blank canvas" for as wide a diversity of arts uses and users as possible, providing space and collaborating with project initiators to make their ideas a success for the benefit of the broader community, and supporting and cultivating collaborations between artists and arts organizations, community groups, the business community, non-profit organizations and the entire community.

During COVID, we have been used for many film and photography projects, and as well as small workshops. As COVID restrictions open up we look forward to a return to many performances, community discussions, classes, and many other uses.
