Our Commitment

December 22, 2023

In 2019, new leadership at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts (LCPA) set a strategic direction for our work with a renewed focus on equity and service to all of New York City.

In the spring of 2020, we committed to hold ourselves accountable in ways we believe will help us be part of positive change in our community.

We update this page annually. Please reach us at [email protected] to share your thoughts.

Works in Progress

We strive for excellence in all we do, and know that this cannot be achieved without true inclusivity. Great skill, talent, and artistry exists across cultures and identities.

Over the past few years, we’ve shared a number of ways in which change towards a more equitable Lincoln Center is taking shape. The work continues, and recent updates are outlined below.
