Photos of Luminate 2013 are now ready to view in the Galleries section of our website. To start, there's a wicked 300 photo gallery from Andre & Lisa, full of rich colourful scenes and epic highlights! We had a great team of photographers dedicated to the task of capturing the diversity of life at Luminate. They each have been working through thousands of images to create thier own unique gallery which we will continue publishing over the next days and weeks. Exciting! Take your time to explore the galleries, while you re-connect to the energy and essence of the magic of Luminate. If you have any special photos you'd like to share with us feel free to contact us here.
Huge love and appreciation goes out to everyone who participated in Luminate Festival 2013 - what an incredible experience!
Massive thanks to all the KISS presenters who shared skills and knowledge with such clarity and inspiration - the popularity of the workshops has been tremendous! With a huge diversity of topics spread over 5 zones, running continuously throughout the week, it was fantastic to see each session packed out, full of amazing learning and open-hearted interactions.
Much respect and gratitude to all the musicians and performers who added their magic to the Luminate experience, including the amazingly talented Juggle-Poi-Toy circus crew!!
With live music we focussed mainly on NZ artists this year, and what a high level of musical genius and creativity! From world jazz, gypsy, dub, reggae, soul and folk to vituoso guitar, tribal drumming, ladino, celtic and balkan beat, the influences from musical traditions around the world were infused with a unique kiwi-aoteaora flavour, providing the most wondrous musical journeys. Big thanks also to all the electronic producers & djs who continuously mesmerize us with the complexity and quality of cutting edge production. At Luminate music is offered as part of the living workshop experience, to learn about different musical styles, traditions, instruments, time signatures and technology; and find healing, release and renewed energy through dance and movement. We love to hear about what you have learnt and been inspired by this year at Luminate. Add your comments here and share your most luminating experiences with us. This feedback helps us tremendously.
Huge thanks to our incredibly dedicated and hardworking core crew and volunteer team, you are total legends! Arohanui xx
