Luminato and its artistic and venue partners are committed to being a festival that is accessible as many people as possible. At the core of this commitment are specialized performances that are designed to accommodate a wide range of audience members. We thank the members of the Artistic Access Advisory: Natasha Bacchus, Art Gunter, Sean Lee, Christine Malec, Rebecca Singh, Jessica Watkin who joined Christine Karcza, Luminato’s ongoing Accessibility Consultant in helping plan this year’s Access Program. We are working on ways to ensure:
- Our programs and services are provided in a manner that respects the dignity and independence of all people.
- Our programs and services for people living with disabilities are integrated, creating equal opportunities for everyone to participate in and benefit from the festival.
Check back in April for more details.
We work in various venues across Toronto and each venue has different accessibility features. Advance information for performances on sale now are available for the Elgin Theatre here and the Bluma Appel Theatre here.
For those performances offering Audio Description for blind and low vision patrons, devices should be picked up at least 30 min prior in order to hear introductory notes describing the set, costumes and performers.
