V-LEAF Retreat 2022 Will Be Released Week Of May 10th!

Fall is here and festival time has come. LEAF is officially entering into our 25th year and we’re thrilled to have you on this journey with us. For a quarter of a century, we’ve been connecting communities and cultivating curiosity through cultural arts, experiences, and now, with our LEAF Global Arts center.  

Through our work and our many LEAF Festivals, we’ve hosted 500,000 people at the majestic Lake Eden, represented 101 countries and 16,000 performers. Since the pandemic hit, we’ve gone virtual. First with our classes and May V-LEAF and then with Reimagine 2020. And now, in honor of our 25 years and what would have been our 50th festival, V-LEAF is back for October! 

Musical Performances - Past, Present, Virtual

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.
