Image for Lincoln Center to Host Global Exchange on Impact of Art and Culture

Aug 24, 2015

Lincoln Center (New York, NY) has announced the first Lincoln Center Global Exchange, a convening of 200 international leaders from business, government, education, media, science, and the arts that will explore how art and culture can become even more effective in fostering healthy citizens, vibrant cities, and strong communities. According to Lincoln Center, 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. The event will take place in New York City on September 18.

“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.

Discussion topics during the day will include:

  • Art + Science. How does art affect the brain and spark creativity? How can art and artists help us navigate the challenges of brain disorders.
  • Art + Education. How do we nurture students and citizens through art?
  • Art + Cities. How does art infuse the urban environment with vibrancy, improving quality of life and happiness? How does art facilitate communication and collaboration in a globalized world?

Fareed Zakaria, who will speak during the late morning Art + Education session, noted, “Immersing students in and exposing them to works of art helps to foster sentient and creative citizens, who lead us to develop more sustainable, more productive cities. A broad understanding of the creative and liberal arts is essential as we navigate an increasingly global, technology-driven world.”
