Luminato Festival is Toronto’s international multi-arts festival for people open to having art change their outlook on the world. For 10 days each June, Luminato Festival transforms Toronto’s theatres, parks and public spaces with hundreds of events celebrating theatre, dance, music, literature, food, visual arts, magic, film, and more. The Luminato Festival embraces all fields of creativity and encourages cross disciplinary collaboration and creation among leading artists and inspired thinkers of all kinds to transform Toronto, create a culture that is accessible to all people and impact Canadian and global arts.
David Pecaut's Dream
Luminato began as a dream that each year Toronto would invite the world to join us in celebrating creativity. A dream where the best artists in the world and the best artists in Canada fill the stage that is Toronto with new and wonderful creations. Today that dream has become the reality of a boisterous festival sprawling all over the city with music, theatre, dance, visual arts, literature, film and celebrations of all kinds.
Luminato is a hugely personal and collective enterprise. It is a shared spectacle. At its core Luminato is about the creativity in each one of us. Luminato is a time, a place and a set of experiences where each of us can reconnect with the creative in ourselves. The dream of Luminato is that each of us can discover and share our innate creativity. And in doing so, connect with one another as a community in the most powerful way we know.— DAVID PECAUT (JUNE 2009)
