welcome to the REDFERN Arts center!
All of us at the Redfern Arts Center are delighted to welcome you to the 2014–15 season. We thank all of our audiences and artists who have participated in our performances and activities, and for helping to spread the word about our programs.
I invite you to use our website as your guide to all of the exceptional programming
offered this season at the Redfern. You can dance to the fiery sounds of Spanish
Harlem Orchestra, or experience the thrill and horror of the silent film classic, The
Phantom of the Opera. Come take a whirlwind ride through the 20th Century
with Double Edge Theatre’s The Grand Parade, and relive or discover the world
of Bob Dylan as we salute The Basement Tapes. As a presenter of live arts, it is
a privilege to bring to you a diverse season filled with the exciting artists of our time.
We are especially excited about our partnership with the Keene Public Library to
present City Council Meeting, an exploration of local government through an
artistic lens and an event that will be performed by the community. This year-long
project is an example of the Redfern’s commitment to offer unique opportunities to
explore the creative process, and provide access to artists that go beyond a single
performance. Check out our Creative Connections Creative page to learn more about our outreach activities, and look for the special box on every event page to see what free public programs are being offered in connection with the performance.
Join us to rediscover your favorites and take a chance on the unexpected. I look
forward to seeing you throughout the season!
