LEAF Global Experience Anniversary Party

It’s hard to believe that we’re celebrating the 3rd year of having a brick and mortar location in the heart of downtown Asheville on the Historic African American Block. We would be so honored to have you join us, cultivate your cultural curiosity with an interactive evening at the LEAF Global Experience, and step into a place that holds extraordinary Black History from past and present.

Global feels so amazing with the music alive and especially when kids and/or families are here! We will have LEAF teaching artists and experiences for you to enjoy AND will be unveiling 2 new exhibits — the Original Del Cardo Doors and an outstanding Life Size Portrait Photography Exhibit by Tracey Schmidt! It will be like your very own LEAF Field Trip! Light hors d’oeuvres will be waiting for you and we will have tasty beverages for sale.

Please share and bring anyone who you think may enjoy this celebratory evening!! There’s no ticket, but we suggest a donation of $10-20. 

The event is finished.


Mayani is a Maasai boy from longido Arusha. He went to boarding school at 6 years old and lost his Maasai language and tradition. Since joining the LEAF program, he has learned to sing Maasai songs, practiced the ‘jump’ tradition and wear Maasai shukas (traditional clothing). Mayani is extremely happy and is currently teaching other youth the culture.
