What is Luminato?

Vibrant and celebratory; a global player; supporting artists and inspiring social change: these are just a few ways to describe the international event that is Luminato, a civically engaged festival dedicated to performance, media, and visual arts programming that cuts across traditional art-form boundaries.

Since 2007, when it was launched to shine a spotlight on Toronto as a globally-connected city boasting an incredible tapestry of creativity, Luminato Festival Toronto has entertained millions of people with performances, events, and spectacles involving over 15,000 artists from more than 40 countries.

From June 9-19, 2022, Luminato will shine a spotlight on the Toronto region, offering inspiring, large-scale experiences that unite audiences and artists through exceptional moments of entertainment, discovery and community building.

Why Luminato?

Commitment to your development and growth. Regular internal trainings in topics such as anti-racism, disability awareness, leadership as well as self-led professional development opportunity support.

Great culture. We strive to create a supportive and understanding environment here at Luminato. Our work environment is relaxed and our hours are flexible, outside of an expectation to be online/ available between the hours of 10am and 3pm.

Work-life Balance. Many employee-led social and wellness initiatives that all staff are encouraged to participate in. We understand that the momentum required to produce a festival of this scale means there are times where we will be asking you to work more than the typical 9-5, so outside of festival times we work really hard to prioritize work-life balance and mental health care.

Hybrid work environment. Luminato is currently fully remote due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but when it is safe to do so we will be transitioning to a hybrid work environment with a flex-office space at Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street, a fully accessible building. Our office is comfortable and relaxed, and has a great view of the city. We encourage our staff to work wherever they feel most comfortable and productive, whether that is at home or at the office.

Incredible Team. We have a dynamic, resourceful, talented and collaborative team here at Luminato. We are a small but mighty team who are constantly finding new ways of working together and supporting one another to achieve our organizational and personal goals.

And of course, a Really Fun Festival.
