Today more than ever, it is imperative for any cultural organization like ours to adopt a reflective position by imagining new approaches offering trailblazing alternatives. L’Imagier chooses to be part of a current of innovative action firmly linked to the issues of today’s society. As actors of change, L’Imagier prioritize physical and intellectual accessibility of the arts. We consciously reconfigure our practices and processes of creative production, while assuming our civic responsibility and measuring our impact on society, communities, the environment, and local economies. The flourishing of cultural offerings generates direct economic and social benefits that stimulate all sectors at the local, regional and national levels. Our role is to look beyond traditional solutions; we create projects and build long-term relationships that are new, progressive, and relevant to the context in which we operate today.
