imaginemag - arts & culture emagazine

ImagineMag! After 21 editions we have grown in knowledge and respect for the different art forms that struggle and flourish in our country. Our fascination for everyone’s creativity is boundless but we know we have only touched the tip of the cultural iceberg.

Our drivers at helm are Amy Gould, Director of Dance Crew, Principal of the AGBS and owner of the Theatre On-Main and Dr Dawn Gould, owner of FACTS FOUND, an historical research bureau.

We have added an essential ingredient to our recipe – a marketing and promotional consultant Alex Mears who is available to discuss your requirements.

We welcome your comments and ideas. We are looking to implement new ideas in the forthcoming editions.

You have to download the free event listing file on our home page, fill it in and return to us. It will be uploaded as soon as it is received. Look right of the screen to see turquoise block click here.
