Since 1992 the luminaria have shown their broad cross-cultural appeal by visiting more than 40 countries across 5 continents. Many events are in discussion for 2017/2018 but will not appear on the schedule below until they are confirmed. Do not hesitate to return to this page to check for the recently confirmed events. 

"Ixilum had a great response from the press and an excellent reaction from a Sao Paulo public that ranged from bankers to street kids."  Stephen Rimmer, British Council, Brazil

Cancelled bookings

Many confirmed events are cancelled due to the Covid 19 situation. Numerous options that were in discussion for 2020 have also dropped out of our 2020 Schedule.


AoA is working on ways to adjust the luminarium admission procedure and experience taking into account the need for physical distancing and protective measures.

The smaller lumini single domes may become interesting options for presenters who want to reach out to smaller audiences.

Our sheltered and semi closed reception tents may also meet a need in the current context.

AoA is working on ways to adjust our offer to meet the current context. We would be happy to share these ideas with presenters who would like to hear more.
