2024 Lunarfest GTA - Dragons

Under the snow-white moonlight
round and mellow with big red eyes…

White
Is it empty space or gentle warmth?
Are you able to see your possibilities in its infinity?

Red
Is it a juicy apple or good fortune?
Are you able to see your uniqueness within its vibrancy?

A shape
Is it a frame or is it a cage?
Or does it allow you to see the edges of your own horizons

A hop
Is it a dancer or just the breeze?
Or do you see the freedom in your creativity?

Moonlight
Is it distance or fullness?
Or does it shed light on your courage?

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.
