Luminato 2020’s industry platform Illuminating works is structured as a

Call & Response  


For the first day, we have invited five international presenters to consider the question
(the Call): 
It’s 2025. When you think about festival life in 2019, can you reflect on what you miss, and what you are deeply relieved has changed.

On the second day, a group of Toronto-based artists will reflect on these ideas
(the Response).
The presentations will be followed by facilitated conversations.
Moderator - Jivesh Parasram,
Rumble Theatre, Vancouver, BC
