"One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time." -Carl Sagan
Words and stories transcend time. A narrative is not the story itself but rather the telling of it. The adventures we recall with friends, the anecdotes we share with strangers, or the fables we've heard from elders. These are narratives. We want to recount to you the beginnings of this lovely place we call the loft.
The Narrative Loft came to be as a place for which people could tell their story. Michelle Lee, the loft's owner and Chief Narration Officer saw a vision for this enthralling space a few years back. You can't help but take one look at this place and see it's possibilities. It started as a spot for creatives, like photographers, to do their craft. To write their stories through the lens. However, it developed into a space for much more than that. The Narrative has become a hip, eclectic and inviting venue for events, which Santa Barbara has plenty of. Weddings, birthdays, creative workshops or business power meetings. We are so happy to be a place that people can gather in which to share, educate, laugh, love, tell and live their narratives with one another!!
