Long days. Warm nights. It’s summer in Toronto and Luminato is back.
The festival opens with a LIVE in-person takeover in the heart of the city at Yonge-Dundas Square. Free concerts, onstage talks, and an eco-art fair explore themes of sustainability and inclusion through the perspective of artists and art-makers.
Don’t miss a weekend packed with music, conversation, and art from iskwē and Queer Songbook Orchestra featuring Beverly Glenn-Copeland, to David Suzuki, Edward Burtynsky, and many more. Enjoy free mainstage concerts at 7pm on Thursday and Friday, followed by the world premiere of Edward Burtynsky’s In the Wake of Progress at 8pm ****on Saturday and Sunday. ****Burtynsky’s breathtaking exploration of humanity’s impact on the earth fills the screens surrounding Yonge-Dundas Square until 11 pm, immersing audiences in a 30-minute visual journey accompanied by Phil Strong’s epic original score.
The weekend daytime program will explore art and climate activism through music, talks, information sharing, and participatory activities, including a rare opportunity for Edward Burtynsky and David Suzuki to share the stage in conversation.
