The Odyssey Project
The Odyssey Project is a collaborative theater process between youth from a juvenile detention facility in Santa Barbara county and undergraduate students from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Using the template of Homer's Odyssey, the participants gather on the university campus to explore the mythic elements in their lives in order to reconstruct the epic poem in their own voices. The project leads to a public performance at a local theater. Everyone on this creative journey is a hero or heroine. The project is designed to honor youth in identifying their heroic life mission and map a course of action. It employs theater arts as a strategy for inspiring life affirming choices.
In doing so, it seeks to demonstrate how artistic cooperation transcends class, racial and social barriers; and how art, with rehabilitation, serves as an alternative to incarceration and penalty.

What IS Socialism?
Amidst a dramatic and surprising election season, the word "socialism" has found a place at the table, thanks, in part, to the democratic-socialist Bernie Sanders. Indeed, "socialism" was the most looked-up term on Merriam-Webster's website in 2015. However, the word seems to refer to anything from Scandinavian-style, egalitarian social programs, to tyrannical state ideologies, to utopian, post-capitalist worlds. What do socialists actually believe, and why is it relevant today?
