It’s opening week for UCSB Arts & Lectures’ 2022-23 season! On this week’s episode, we sit down with Celesta Billeci, Miller McCune Executive Director for UCSB Arts & Lectures; Caitlin O’Hara, Director of Public Lectures and Special Initiatives; and Charles Donelan, Senior Writer and Publicist, to talk about the new season lineup and what’s to come this fall. This year’s theme emphasizes challenging the status quo and inspiring the next generation to be change-makers.
