Luminato’s Illuminations are events created to enhance Festival programming, featuring esteemed Festival guests in discussions about the artistic process, the healing power of storytelling, art as safe ground and modern takes on classic tales.

Today, master storytellers Laura Simms and Dan Yashinsky discuss the transformative power of storytelling in this Illuminations program. Simms’s work includes bringing stories to Haiti, to New Orleans post Hurricane Katrina, and in work with child soldiers, including her own adopted son, Ishmael Beah (author of A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier). Yashinsky is a Toronto-based storyteller, radio host, author, and community organizer. His work includes Talking You In, a modern Shahrazad story set in a neo-natal intensive care unit, which has been used in training programs for critical care medical staff. Yashinsky is founder of the Toronto Festival of Storytelling, and co-founder of the Storytellers School of Toronto.
