In light of the evolving situation with COVID-19, Luminato Festival Toronto has announced the immediate cancellation of the 2020 Festival which was due to take place June 11 – 28.
Luminato is Toronto’s international arts festival and one of the preeminent arts festivals in North America, having commissioned over 100 new works, with more than 3,600 performances featuring 15,000+ artists from over 40 countries.
Luminato acknowledges this land, known as Tkaronto, and honours the stewardship, past, present and future of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the New Credit. Tkaronto is in the Dish With One Spoon Territory. The Dish With One Spoon is a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work in the community on this territory.
