On behalf of the Government of Ontario, I am pleased to extend warm greetings to the Luminato Festival on the occasion of its 10th anniversary, and to Toronto Waterfront Magazine on the occasion of its 14th anniversary.

In its first decade, Luminato has become one of the preeminent arts festivals in North America, earning a well-deserved reputation as a meeting place for the global arts community. This year offers yet another feast for the senses — with performance, visual art, music, theatre, dance, magic and more.

Toronto has had the honour of hosting this outstanding showcase of the arts since its inception. Both Luminato Festival and Toronto Waterfront Magazine continue to infuse this vibrant urban centre with a unique perspective on cultural life.

Art and culture breathe life into our communities, inspire innovation and serve to strengthen and promote Ontario’s creative economy.

Please accept my sincere best wishes for continued success.

Kathleen Wynne
