New York’s first annual Imagine Festival, of Arts, Issues and Ideas coincides with the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City. The Imagine Festival is hosting over 125 events that mix artistic and educational activities through a series of concerts, performances, screenings, forums, town meetings and other extraordinary cultural happenings. From August 28 to September 2, 2004 we will come together to share our intelligence, creativity and passion at numerous venues throughout the city. The Imagine Festival, of Arts, Issues and Ideas takes place in many locations throughout the city’s five boroughs. Each of the six days is dedicated to addressing an issue through arts events and panel discussions. These issues are: Freedom, Community, Democracy, Justice, Prosperity & Our Future. The Imagine Festival is a free speech zone. All are welcome here.
