Lincoln Center Activate
What if you are just one conversation away from the next groundbreaking innovation in your field? Curiosity, dialogue, and imagination ignite those brilliant “a-ha” moments when we step outside of our comfort zone and step into the larger conversation. Lincoln Center Activate aims to light the spark by offering a shared platform for artists and educators to connect, collaborate, and build new ways of thinking and practicing across creative disciplines. We hope you’ll join our multidisciplinary community.
In July 2021, we launched a year-long investigation into Radical Welcoming—the intentional and extraordinary effort to make people feel welcome. Our explorations continue into 2022, which commences with a January weekend of inspirational events curated by Hope Boykin—educator, mentor, speaker, choreographer, and former Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater dancer. Beyond January, we look forward to more conversations, events, and artistic projects with our growing community.
Together, we're exploring:
• 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 be welcoming and hospitable in an often unhospitable world?
CART (real-time closed captioning) and American Sign Language interpretation will be provided for all Activate events. If you have any additional accommodation requests or questions, please email [email protected] or call the access line at (212) 875-5375.
