Two quotes that we felt like really summed LEAF up are found on the website.

LEAF embodies the universal language of music and transcends the significance that music and the arts are fundamental cornerstones in every community around the world. My love for music and dance is shared in common with the entire LEAF community and grows at every festival.

Sarah Nie: LEAF Board Member

LEAF is a vital and vibrant contributor to our local community through the festivals, LEAF Schools & Streets, and on a larger scale through LEAF International. LEAF is an essential part of my own life, for me, my family and my friends. LEAF is a biannual oasis for us that makes our lives richer in ever-changing ways!
