Lotus Blossoms in Schools

Each year, Lotus Blossoms artists visit schools in south-central Indiana, performing for thousands of young students. The Blossoms Bazaar hosts nearly 1,000 4th-graders for a day of multicultural discovery. To keep fees as low as possible, Lotus relies on donor support — you can become an Adopt-a-School sponsor and help bring multicultural music, song, dance, and storytelling to southern Indiana schools.
