August 13, 2015 — Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts today announced the inaugural Lincoln Center Global Exchange, a first-of-its-kind convening that will bring together 200 international thought leaders and change agents from business, government, education, media, science and the arts at the Lincoln Center campus in New York City on September 18 – just days before the opening of the United Nations General Assembly – to explore how art and culture can become even more effective in fostering healthy citizens, vibrant cities and strong communities. The Global Exchange is the centerpiece of a broader effort focused on advancing the relevance and centrality of art, across sectors and geographies, and inspiring investment in culture worldwide.
 

“If art and culture are truly going to be central to our society, they must adapt a forward-thinking and engaged perspective. The Lincoln Center Global Exchange is an important step in that regard,” said Jed Bernstein, President of Lincoln Center.
 

Leveraging Lincoln Center’s unique convening power, the Global Exchange, a day-long, invitation-only event, will feature conversations and integrated live performances focused on the intersections of Art and Science, Art and Education and Art and Cities. Participants from more than 20 countries on six continents will come together to imagine and initiate action-oriented programs in which the arts drive meaningful and measurable progress.
