In Optical Dialectic, Peter Owusu-Ansah takes us on a deep dive into his world of colour. Dancer Irvin Washington and artist Luis Jacob weigh in on the impact that colour has on our emotions and what it can represent.

Explore the Access Hub

Luminato Festival Toronto is working hard to bring accessibility into the centre of what we do. We know this is a deep process that requires a long-term commitment. We are excited to share the Access Hub with you.

The Land

The land we gather on is the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Chippewa, the Anishinaabeg, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Wendat Confederacy, and many other Indigenous peoples, both known and unknown.

This territory is subject to Treaty 13 and the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant and is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples from across Turtle Island.

Luminato acknowledges our responsibilities to these territorial agreements and to peaceably share and care for the resources of this land while aspiring to embody the treaties through our actions, our relationship-building, and our programs.

Luminato is grateful to have the opportunity to work with many diverse Indigenous nations on this territory and with other guests to this land.
