Lunar Lanterns

Varley Art Gallery Courtyard

Lanterns are a major tradition of Asian festivals. Their warm glow lights up the last of winter, allowing us to look forward to a new year of bright things. Our Lunar Lanterns bridges this tradition with the local communities here in the Greater Toronto Area. Collaborating with Indigenous artists this year, the artworks each tell a unique story. 

In the Year of the Dragon, LunarFest wishes that everyone can see beyond the traditions we were taught, and create new traditions that allow us to coexist in celebration. Through arts and culture, let’s explore the many ways we are Born to be Free!

LunarFest GTA is grateful to be held on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples, that is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We acknowledge our privilege to be gathered on this land, and commit to work with and be respectful to the Indigenous peoples whose arts and stories inspire us to bring communities together.
