Luminato is Toronto’s international arts festival dedicated to performance, media and visual arts, and programming that cuts across traditional artform boundaries. Luminato works closely with Canadian artists to support the development and creation of distinctive new work as well as presenting today’s most exciting artists from around the world. The 2018 festival runs June 6 to 24 and extends from its previous 10 days to 19, the intended festival length for future years.
Luminato acknowledges this land, known as Tkaronto, and honours the stewardship, past, present and future of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the New Credit. Tkaronto is in the Dish With One Spoon Territory. The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work in the community, on this territory.
Luminato gratefully acknowledges the generosity of its Founding Government Partner the Province of Ontario, its Major Partner the Government of Canada and its Presenting Partner the City of Toronto.
