At 8pm the space will morph into a Dance Party hosted by Dexx with a $10 door charge for those who wish to join the evening at that time. Bring your sweetie and dance Valentine’s eve at the Hub.
Gardens for Humanity was founded in 1996 in order to provide ecological and art education through developing school and community gardens. The inspiration of founder Adele Seronde was to create opportunities that would give children and all members of our community the values, tools and experiences needed to seek and regain balance with the natural world.
Funds raised will support the art enrichment program called “Celebrating the Art in Earth” currently in six schools in Sedona and the Verde Valley. This program provides much needed art and environmental education by engaging students with activities that connect children to the environment, school gardens and to the food they eat through hands-on art experiences using a variety of media including drawing, collage, ceramics, singing and dance.

Founded less than 3 years ago Red Earth’s mission is to provide a platform to inspire and nurture many voices through live performance, and encourage dialogue exploring the human experience in our diverse communities. In doing this Red Earth has partnered with many organization in Sedona, bringing live theatre to the yard at Sedona Recycles, (Recycling With a Unicorn), the Sedona Heritage Museum (Loplop and the Queen) and the collage pieces Crushes and Bouquets and This Earth We Call Home. Red Earth has partnered with Sedona Arts Center several times, including Painting Churches, The Wild Party and Interiors (an evening of one-acts and monologues), and the ongoing Poets Corner series as well as the annual Little Black Dress readings of new 10 minute plays by female writers.
Red Earth Theatre will be dedicating funds from this event to their original April production celebrating Shakespeare in this the 400th Anniversary year of his death. Working and creating with 8 adult actors and 2 high school students, this journey with Shakespeare will include scenes, soliloquies and a rap number! Playing at Sedona Arts Center and utilizing projection technology the fundraiser will support all aspects of the production.
The very first time Gardens for Humanity and Red Earth played together was in 2013 when Adele Seronde hosted the first ever fund raising event for Red Earth at her lovely home. The journey to this joint event in support of both organizations is a measure of the shared love of the arts and how we build and share community. Please join us on Saturday Feb 13th beginning at 5pm (or at 8pm if you just want to dance) at the Sedona Hub on Posse Ground Road for a special evening of celebration.
