Luminato - Toronto's Festival of Arts and Creativity is an annual city-wide multidisciplinary artistic celebration featuring theatre, dance, classical and contemporary music, visual arts, film, literature, and more. Each year, the Festival features highly acclaimed world premieres, exciting new works, and unexpected collaborations which result in unforgettable creative moments.
Luminato is founded on three principles: collaboration, accessibility, and diversity.
Luminato facilitates collaborations across cultures and artistic genres. The festival encourages local, Canadian, and international artists to work together in discovering unprecedented creative expressions. The Luminato staff, led by CEO, Janice Price, partners with the Festival Advisory Committee, as well as the arts leadership of the City of Toronto, to shape the programming offered at the Festival.
Free, widely accessible events and "accidental encounters with art" are hallmarks of Luminato. At every turn, festival-goers are invited to participate, explore, and celebrate their own creative spirit while enjoying everything Luminato has to offer.
Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. Luminato embraces and celebrates the cultural diversity of the city, and recognizes that creativity flourishes when cultures join together in a spirit of tolerance and respect.
Luminato began as an aspiration for Toronto to realize its true potential as one of the most creative cities in the world. Conceived out of the city's unique vibrancy and cultural diversity, and designed to showcase Toronto's bustling downtown core and the cultural renaissance transforming the renowned concert halls, galleries, museum collections, and performing arts companies, Luminato was created to bring Toronto's light to the world, and the world's light to Toronto.
