New Mythos Artists Grant
“OUT OF THE MUD AND ASHES”
THE APPLICATION PERIOD FOR 2018 NEW MYTHOS IS NOW OPEN.
Closing Date for Submission is May 15, 2018
OPUS first implemented the New Mythos grants in 2009 with the intention to facilitate a positive movement toward the critical areas of social justice, the health of the environment and human relations as they are informed by the fields of depth psychology, mythology, and archetypal studies, particularly as they promote understanding of the importance of psyche in the world.
In the wake of the devastating Thomas Fire and resulting mudflows, we are in search of new ways to understand the patterns underlying the profound transformation we are experiencing among ourselves and our surroundings. This year, New Mythos grants are being offered by OPUS Archives and Research Center to bring together the creative voices of Santa Barbara and Ventura County artists for an evening of reflection, healing, and entertainment at the historic Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara. “Out of the Mud and Ashes” promises to evoke and inspire a new mythos to embrace our community.
