The Odyssey Project

BY AHMED ASI
@ VOL 14 ON AUG 12, 2015

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.

THis was "Presenation of the Day" on Wednesday, October 7th, 2015.

What IS Socialism?

BY PER HOEL
@ VOL 17 ON MAY 18, 2016

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?

Per Hoel is a professional multimedia producer, filmmaker, and political organizer. He develops videos and content mostly for educational and non-profit purposes, serving humankind by bringing strong storytelling and creative vision to timely, important causes. He's originally from Norway and lived in Washington, D.C. before moving to Santa Barbara two years ago. He's collaborated with local climate justice activism and is also engaged in projects around energy democracy and renter's rights. He also founded the Santa Barbara chapter of the Jacobin Magazine reading group, an open-invitation group that meets monthly to debate and discuss short readings through a socialist lens.
