Conference on Luminato

Michele will be presenting at the PSi #16 Performing Publics in Toronto, 9-13 June 2010, a paper entitled: “Luminato Festival: contributing to the habitus of place and belonging?”.
This paper will compare the role of "ethnic" festivals like the Chinatown Festival and "mainstream" festivals like Luminato in including visible minority ethnic groups in the participation, structure and artistic process of these festivals. Does an ethnic festival ghettoize or reclaim space? Does the mainstream festival exclude or include selectively?
