An international arts festival dedicated to performance, media and visual arts, Luminato provides artistic programming that cuts across traditional art-form boundaries. They work closely with artists from all walks of life to support the development and creation of distinctive new work. This year, there are many powerful immersive and participatory works of art to challenge and inspire you.

Be sure to check out Built on Genocide at the Harbourfront Centre which is a large-scale installation by multidisciplinary artist Jay Soule | CHIPPEWAR. While you’re hopping around town, why not try Henry G20 — a theatre play delivered via podcast and augmented reality? This personalized multimedia experience is accessed through a mobile app at the original sites or anywhere you choose.
