In 2011 we launched our first international festival, the SB-ADaPT Festival.  As we morphed into ArtBark International this continued on in 2012 in collaboration with RAW MATTERS in Vienna, Austria, and in 2013 and as a tri-city festival in Brooklyn, NY; Santa Barbara, CA; and Pasadena, CA.  Our organization, in interest of promoting growth in the community, stepped aside from festival production when another dance company stepped forwards expressing a desire to produce festivals in Santa Barbara (at this time we did not feel there was space enough in our small town for two dance festivals)

Setting the intention to deepen artistic relationships between artists participating in the inaugural Festival we designed this project in such a way that participants in 2011 events were provided additional performing and networking opportunities with events scheduled in both Santa Barbara and Pasadena.
