Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (LCPA) is a cultural and civic cornerstone of New York City. The primary advocate for the entire Lincoln Center campus, our strategic priorities include: fostering collaboration and deepening impact across the Lincoln Center resident organizations; championing inclusion and increasing the accessibility and reach of Lincoln Center’s work; and nurturing innovation on stage and off to help ensure the arts are at the center of civic life for all. LCPA presents hundreds of programs each year, offered primarily for free and choose-what-you-pay, including many specially designed for young audiences, families, and those with disabilities.
What we believe in
Accessibility and equity
We believe the arts must be central to thriving societies. Championing inclusion and increasing the accessibility and reach of Lincoln Center’s work is one of our primary priorities. We are committed to supporting artists and voices whose work has not historically been centered at Lincoln Center. We integrate access needs in the creative process and strive for the work on our stages to reflect our differences and interconnectedness.
Partnership and collaboration
Collaborating with all of the arts organizations that call Lincoln Center home is at the heart of our work. We are humbled to partner hand-in-hand with organizations across campus and New York in the cultural and civic spaces to offer rich experiences that serve and reflect the vibrant people of New York City, and global audiences at-large.
Innovation both on stage and off
We support innovative new ideas and experimentation, and leaders to help ensure the arts are responsive to broad societal questions and issues with which we all must grapple. We strive to be a place where artists and creators can develop bold, new initiatives that stretch the boundaries of art-making and the role of culture in our communities.
