Desire Paths

Luminato’s new podcast exploring futures of the city, designed by artists

Desire Paths is a six-part series of audio experiences that explore Toronto futures, designed by artists.

Through field trips, self-guided narration, and interviews, each episode will offer a unique view into the artist’s imagination, inviting the listener to reflect on desired paths to shape the next decade in Toronto.

Field trips across the city provide the backdrop for reflection through movement and physical presence, allowing artists to connect their personal histories and lived experiences to their vision for possible futures. With premonitions in mind, the second part of each episode will develop into a conversation between the artist and a city-builder to explore how to bring this desired path into being.

Desire Paths is produced by Alex Rand, and co-curated by Hima Batavia and Alex Rand, with Creative Producers Macy Siu, Jeremy Glenn, and Robert Bolton of Toronto-based foresight studio, From Later.
