Description

"Luminato began as a dream," said its co-founder, David Pecaut, "-- a dream that each year Toronto would invite the world to join us in celebrating creativity." And from its first season, in 2007, the annual June festival has set out to do exactly that. An annual multi-disciplinary celebration of theatre, dance, music, literature, food, visual arts, fashion and film, Luminato has become known for its free, widely accessible events and "accidental encounters with art." In five short years, the festival has drawn local, national, and international talent and showcased the work of both emerging and established artists. Written by acclaimed author David Macfarlane, this visually stunning book celebrates the festival's originality and creativity. It features more than 250 images from Luminato events and performances. An original portraits section by celebrated photographer Nigel Dickson highlights the contributions of the people who make Luminato happen: the volunteers, the artists, and the festival's supporters. In 2007, Luminato stepped into the cultural current of one of the most diverse and creative cities in the world. Toronto hasn't been the same since.
