Hiring Call: Artistic Director

Visionary, community-engaged, and inclusive, you are an artistic leader who illuminates and crystallizes opportunities. You have the ability to create and innovate within one of the most vibrant, multicultural cities in the world with our annual international arts festival. Through your work, thought-provoking, once-in-a-lifetime experiences will reflect and connect our city with the world, and the world with the greater Toronto region. A creative, inspirational leader and partner, you will shape the path forward for Luminato Festival Toronto’s growth and sustainability as a cultural cornerstone.

An international arts festival featuring big, bold, contemporary works of art that cut across traditional artistic boundaries, we are a charitable, not-for-profit organization that introduces Canadians to today’s most exciting global and local artists, while also welcoming international audiences to celebrate all that the Toronto region has to offer. You will be a catalyst for arts evolution and community connectivity, reporting to and collaborating with an aspirational CEO and Board, inspiring and empowering a talented and dedicated team, and engaging with our valued funders, donors, supporters, partners, and community leaders.

Forging new and deepening existing connections and collaborations across the vibrant Toronto arts ecosystem and your international network, you will curate and present ground-breaking festivals that draw and delight crowds. You have a record of advancing the principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion, and are deeply committed to decolonization and reconciliation. As Luminato’s next Artistic Director, you will attract and engage diverse audiences and artists, opening a world of possibilities for this extraordinary city.

We believe in creating spaces where anyone can be involved, engaged, empowered, and inspired. Luminato adheres to Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). We will work proactively through all stages of recruitment to create a barrier-free hiring process, and will provide accommodations as required. Should you require accommodations, please advise Caldwell Partners.
