We are grateful for the support of the Leo Buscaglia Foundation whose mission is building community Spirit by helping people and others.
Leo Buscaglia was an inspirational educator, writer and lecturer who dedicated his work and life to love. He taught a non-credit course for many years at USC called Love 1A. The class inspired a book called Love and many more that became bestsellers.
Festival founder Heidi Durrow discovered his work as a struggling teen. “I was a mixed-race teen growing up poor,” Durrow said. “I felt not just lonely but somehow unloveable. Leo Buscaglia’s books and his speeches helped me through some difficult moments. I still have his books and read them when I’m feeling blue.”
We are excited to continue to grow the Mixed Remixed Festival with the help of the Leo Buscaglia Foundation!
