What is LEAF?

LEAF Community Arts (LEAF), a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization is comprised of LEAF Festival, LEAF Schools & Streets and LEAF International.  In 2013, we archived the name Lake Eden Arts Festival, honoring our history and recognizing LEAF arts education programs extend beyond the LEAF Festival. We will proudly answer to LEAF Community Arts or “LEAF” for short!  LEAF connects cultures & creates community through music & arts. Since 2004, LEAF has served more than 42,000 youth in the Asheville Area and 10 international countries.

In 2015, LEAF launched two inaugural programs – LEAF Downtown AVL & LEAF Local Events – in order to further expand its mission to connect cultures and create community in the greater Asheville area.
