Mission & History

Dinner Theatre Arts Organization


Here at Luminary We’re a nonprofit Dinner Theatre Arts org and Theatre Ministry that brings awareness to youth issues in the community through theatre, food, design, and arts within multipurpose spaces. Developing young artists of tomorrow through sustainability. We are queer & minority founded, operated, and LGBTQIA organization. Luminary serves as a art outlet, and as an activism organization.


Luminary started partly as a lifelong dream of a father that always told his family that he would open a restaurant. For almost 30 year his oldest child was always reminded of the restaurant his father would open someday. The oldest child had dreams of his own to help the community through the arts. But always remembering the dream of their father. After being involved in many nonprofit organizations and going through the year 2020 that would go down in history. Watching many businesses and organizations close their doors temporarily and permanently. The oldest child decided it was the time to make his dream and fathers a reality. They got some of the amazing people that they had networked with over the years together to create what is Luminary. 

Luminary slowly was in the works starting in 2013  but was not officially founded into June 2021. We work to create an arts and culture organization with social enterprise, sharing experiences centered around a commitment to create a more just society, marginalization, gentrification, and exploitation. Anti-racism and anti-oppression mentalities are essential in an ecosystem that has profited from the historic antecedent of plantation capitalism. In pursuing a synergy of art and service, we have delved into digital production and have become an interdisciplinary study for storytelling. Brings awareness to youth issues in the community such as poverty, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, racism, sexual health services and resources. Through theatre, food, design, and art within a multipurpose space that comes alive.


Luminary works to have open human potential, build community and enrich quality of life by engaging people in theatre, food, design, and art to reflect the wonder and difficulty of our time. The agency’s focus is to enhance the palette with a wide spectrum of experience of every flavour of art and build a connection with the historic latches upon them; as well as the open mindedness for innovation and necessary change.


Luminary seeks to entertain and educate while also helping the community. This includes providing activities, support, and resources for youth and young adults who want to express their artistic talents, which also, brings awareness to youth issues in the community such as poverty, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, racism, sexual health services and resources.
