Minnesota Opera and the Luminary Arts Center abide by the anti-racist and anti-oppressive values set forth in MN Opera’s Diversity Charter. We, therefore, make an explicit rejection of racism. In addition, the Luminary also rejects all forms of oppression including, but not limited to, cissexism, heterosexism, ableism, ageism, and misogyny. Please note that while the Luminary does not curate rentals, we expect those who choose to rent the space will share our values of working towards becoming an anti-racist, anti-oppressive organization.

*The Luminary is operated with a small staff in an effort to reduce cost burden on our renters. Both the Luminary and Minnesota Opera have a commitment to maintaining humane working conditions for their employees. By declaring Monday a “dark day” at the space, we are preserving our staff’s quality of life through a guaranteed day off each week.
