The Santa Barbara Arts Collaborative is piloting an Ask Me Anything video interview program during this coronavirus-restricted period, a free-form online Q&A with smart people from Santa Barbara’s art & culture scene who’ve got stories to tell.

Interviews take place live on Facebook Live— anyone can ask questions and participate in real time via the comments.
(A Facebook account is not necessary to watch the video.)
