Lincoln Center Activate
We are delighted to welcome educators, artists, teaching artists, and arts leaders back to July’s Activate series with a week’s worth of events. Building on our spring programming with Anna Deavere Smith, Activate July launches a year-long investigation into Radical Welcoming—the intentional and extraordinary effort to make people feel welcome. Join us for five days of artist and educator workshops led by Dr. Chris Emdin, New York Philharmonic, New York City Ballet, New York Library for the Performing Arts, artist Andrea Miller, and the Lincoln Center Education team. Also, be sure to join us for a live performance of Make a Joyful Noize on July 15, both in-person and streamed live. We can’t wait to see you throughout the week!
Together, we’ll explore:
• What does Radical Welcoming look like and feel like in performance spaces, studios, classrooms and Zoom rooms?
• How can art and Radical Welcoming help us rebuild and connect with ourselves and with each other?
• How can we learn to be welcoming in an unwelcoming world?
Activate is designed to convene and support communities of educators, artists, teaching artists, and arts leaders in New York and beyond by offering a focused space for collaboration and innovation. We are committed to the growth and sustainability of the arts and arts learning.
