We celebrated the 10th anniversary edition of Luminato with some of our strongest-ever programming, which also connected with highlights of our previous nine years. We marked that milestone with our first-ever residency, in the truly extraordinary Hearn Generating Station, which in effect became our "Hub" for 2016. The unique industrial landmark was transformed into the largest community and cultural centre, a place where visitors and audiences moved freely throughout the entire space. At the Hearn, we showed everything under one roof from high to low, pop to serious, underground to established, old to new, left to right. Our 10th birthday was celebrated in the most exciting and unforgettable ways.
