We are excited to announce the very first fundraiser for Earth Day Savannah.
The 3-hour long event is a counterculture experience that espouses a community-building ethic, and a value system that celebrates life, social responsibility, healthy living, and creative expression. There will be live music performances and visual projections from Savannah’s world-music inspired artist, musicians, poets, dancers and storytellers. The Clyde Venue is the ideal location for the sophisticated event with industrial elegance.
Clyde Venue is located at 223 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. Doors open at 6:30, Performance begins at 7:00pm.
With the theme of the evening being our collective love for Earth, Hueman Auragens (Matthew Duplessie, Alexis Javier, and Frank Unger) are bringing their creative vision to break the barrier between performer and viewer. To achieve this, they will create a seamless progression of music, storytelling, poetry, and dance in a multi-stage format that encompasses the audience and engages them intimately—integrating the experience for both the performer and viewer.
Hueman Auragens has invited José Ray, a multi-disciplinary artist/ DJ to collaborate with other Earth Rise performers to create a unique and immersive event for the guests through the night. Other creative collaborators are founder of Stardust Pixies, Jamie Lynn Falling, spoken word artists Darrell Davis and F∆MLé, Loveologist & Poet Love Shamar shares her Love Poem to the Earth, Strings of the Heart, Jimmy and Lynn Wolling perform genres from 18th century fashionable court music, The Saltwata Players will be showcasing the cultural linkages of Gullah Geechee communities to our planet Earth and opening the evening will be an ode to the North Atlantic Right whale by Chase Anderson.
Joanne Morton will be displaying her public art project, “Magic Passion Love Manifesting Mobile”. The hanging mobile represents the growing collection of personal visions for our planet.
The Buccaneer Club and Prowl Food truck will be the food vendors. Raffle prizes are donated by local businesses.

Earth Day Savannah 2020 will be under the mighty oaks in Daffin Park!
Each year in the spring, the Savannah Chatham Sustainability Coalition and our local community gather in a city park to become the nucleus of the city’s green initiatives. It is a celebration of environmentally responsible people and businesses in coastal Georgia.
The Earth Day Savannah serves as an important opportunity for local government, businesses, non-profits, and community groups to connect with the public and each other. It is the City’s largest environmental outreach event of the year and the largest educational Earth Day event in the state of Georgia.
This event is made free to the public, with generous support from The City of Savannah’s Sustainability Department, community leaders and people like you!
