Lincoln Center International

Lincoln Center International is dedicated to enhancing the vibrancy and sustainability of the performing arts worldwide. Founded to further Lincoln Center’s mission of bringing the best of the performing arts to the broadest possible audience, Lincoln Center International is active in several diverse areas which collectively amplify Lincoln Center’s impact across cultural and geographic borders. What began as a consulting practice has evolved into an institutional engine for philanthropic relationships, cultural exchange, and marketing partnerships with multinational corporations. It also extends the reach of Lincoln Center Education to new markets. In September 2015, Lincoln Center International launched the inaugural Lincoln Center Global Exchange to advance the centrality of art in our world.
