Luminato Festival Toronto 2021 is coming this June

Virtual. Dynamic. Inspirational. We're celebrating our 15th Anniversary festival in June through series of video and digital experiences across the Greater Toronto Area.


Desire Paths

Audio field trips into the futures of our city, as dreamed and designed by artists. The perfect accompaniment to your (admittedly repetitive) daily walk through the neighbourhood.

Arts and Culture in Toronto and the Impacts of COVID-19.


With the necessity to avoid crowds and indoor gatherings of any kind due to the COVID-19 pandemic, arts and culture in Toronto has been hit particularly hard.

Luminato CEO Celia Smith joined Jeremy Warson, host of Electric Cities, to talk about the impacts of the pandemic on Toronto’s arts and culture scene and her optimistic outlook for the industry’s future.
