The Bloom: A Journey Through Transformational Festivals


The power of the transformational festival is undeniable. I can’t count how many people I’ve met over the years (including myself) who have gone to an event and come out completely changed.  At TEDxVancouver 2010, Jeet-Kei Leung gave a beautiful and insightful talk on the history and future of transformational festivals.

After that amazing talk, Jeet-Kei took that inspirational message and developed it in to The Bloom: A Journey Through Transformational Festivals along with Akira Chan and in association with Elevate Films, Keyframe Entertainment, Muti Music & Grounded TV. This 4 part documentary series on transformational festivals looks at the blossoming world-wide movement that taps in to the power and wonder that our community produces.

Screenings are happening across the globe and here in Vancouver we are so excited that Evolver Vancouver and Emily Carr University are showing episode one tomorrow (March 22nd 2013) night at 7PM. There is a sliding scale ticket cost ranging from $5-$10 (or free for Emily Carr students).
