POST COVID 19
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.
AoA tours the luminaria worldwide. If you are interested to hear about a tour that might be shaping up in your country or on your continent, do not hesitate to contact us.
AoA has a luminarium based in North America all year round. For Australia and New Zealand we work with our Australian-based creative partner, Insite Arts.
