Luminato Festival 2007
CEO: Janice Price

In our inaugural Festival of Arts and Creativity, Toronto will show its creativity to the world and also play host to the best that the world has to offer. That is the soul and the purpose of Luminato – that, and the spreading and sharing of joy.

A magnificent stage has been set this June for this global fête called Luminato. Our shared canvas will be the entire city, and just as Toronto inspired Luminato, we know Luminato will inspire you.
