Lincoln Center sees a world in which art is essential: not a sidebar or a frill, but an engine for innovation and progress.

The Lincoln Center Global Exchange is an invitation-only gathering of world leaders and change agents devoted to exploring the role of art and culture in addressing critical challenges facing our collective future. Through dynamic dialogue and powerful performance, this conference bridges disciplines and geographies to help move the arts to the center of international discourse. The goal? To showcase and generate unique and effective arts-based solutions to the world’s most pressing issues.
