Hosted by Luminato Festival

Culturally vibrant; a global presence; and creative works that inspire social change: these are but a few words that capture the international phenomenon that is Luminato, a festival dedicated to performance, media, and visual arts programming that cuts across traditional art-form boundaries. Since its inception in 2007—and founded to shine a spotlight on Toronto as a globally-connected city boasting an incredible tapestry of creativity—over this period Luminato Festival Toronto has entertained millions of individuals through performances, events, and spectacles involving 15,000+ artists from more than 40 countries.

We are looking for a detail-oriented people person with strong computer skills and creative flair to join our Volunteer Office team. Reporting to the Volunteer Manager, you will support all aspects of the planning, implementation, and management of Luminato’s Volunteer Program leading up to and during our annual festival in June. This entails a wide variety of responsibilities including, but not limited to, creating and coordinating engaging events and activities for the volunteers (virtual and in-person), developing training materials, maintaining the volunteer database, tracking new volunteer information, coordinating volunteer shifts and schedules, and managing volunteers during the festival. 

Luminato acknowledges this land, known as Tkaronto, and honours the stewardship, past, present and future of the Wendat, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Tkaronto is part of the Dish With One Spoon Territory.

Luminato is committed to being an accessible and anti-racist workplace. In our programming and our daily work, we are committed to amplifying QTBIPOC voices and enhancing accessibility on stage, for our audiences, and for our staff. Selection decisions are solely based on job-related factors.
