An online magazine is coursed to set sail in the world wide web to cover Bicol Art x Fashion. Bicolanos never run out of talents to showcase to the whole country and to the whole world. Since the online social media is now one of our major sources of information, a magazine was diligently created by a new generation of Bicolano artists. 
Agora, a Greek word in origin "ageirein" meaning to gather is the name of the magazine that we will be able to experience online to further strengthen our love for art and Bicolano culture. This 'gathering' will not only captivate a worldwide audience but will surely entice the eyes of aspiring Bicolano artists. 

       Agora Magazine is a non-profit online magazine dedicated to become a platform for up-and-coming Bikolano artists in the fields of Photography, Fashion, Beauty, Music, Literature, Film, Visual Arts such as Painting and Illustration, Theatre, Industrial and Interior Design and other fields of creativity.
Founded in the first quarter of 2014, Agora Magazine was formed with the desire to showcase the best of Bikol and cultivate a sense of panache and a forward-thinking taste among homegrown talents with a local and global audience. It’s a hip market place for what’s new and who’s who in the local scene, what talent is there to discover, what ideas to unearth. The magazine is a public place, a place to be seen in. ‘Agora,’ after all, is Greek for ‘public place.’

The September issue is a preview of things and shapes to comeand will be called ‘The Paper Issue.’ Harking back to its primordial roots, the online magazine looks into the paper as a weapon, as a tool, as a means for expressing creativity, and as the translated ‘papel’, we look into the roles we play in cultivating Bikol Art into a global, social community of acquired tastes. Photographers, Writers, Makeup Artists, Fashion Stylists, Interior Designers, Graphic Designers, and Illustrators give us their takes on this theme for the maiden issue.
Agora Magazine is a tri-monthly magazine and accepts contributions in the form of Feature Articles, Fashion and Beauty Editorials, Photo Journals, Illustrations and Art Installations, Essays and Critiques and themes vary at every issue.
