Conference 2015

September 18, 2015 in New York City

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

On September 18, 2015, the inaugural Lincoln Center Global Exchange brought together an international group of leaders and change agents to discuss how art and culture can be even more effective in fostering vibrant cities, healthy citizens, and strong communities worldwide. This one-day, invitation-only event gathered influencers from business, government, education, media, science, and the arts for a series of dynamic conversations and live performances intended to spur action and collaboration at a time of profound change.

Art + Science

How does art affect the brain and spark creativity? How can art and artists help us navigate the challenges of brain disorders?

Art + Education

How do we nurture students and citizens through art? How can we tap the underused power of arts learning to address social problems that resist other interventions?

Art + Cities

How does art infuse the urban environment with vibrancy, improving quality of life and happiness? How does art facilitate communication and collaboration in a globalized world?
