NEW YORK -- Celebrate Disability Pride Month, dance at a silent disco, hear a Tony Award winner sing Broadway and American songbook favorites, enjoy performances of Mozart and Stravinsky by the New York Philharmonic, and keep kids entertained with an interactive English-Spanish concert, all as part of a packed July schedule at Lincoln Center’s Restart Stages.

The program also includes the premiere of Faces of the Hero, a visual arts exhibition held in parallel with the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center in Athens, and of You Are Here, an original commission by Andrea Miller incorporating, sculpture, audio, and performance. The GREEN, an imaginative transformation of Lincoln Center’s iconic plaza, will continue to welcome the public.

Lincoln Center also announced today its first-ever poet-in-residence, Mahogany L. Browne, who has curated a schedule of events that includes readings from children’s books with a focus on justice, film screenings, a racial justice writing workshop, and a jazz-poetry performance.

Restart Stages aims to transform Lincoln Center’s campus into a hub of arts access and civic engagement, with ten new outdoor venues hosting music and dance performances, film screenings, cultural events, a reading room, and public services like food bank distributions. It is made possible through the Stavros Niarchos Foundation-Lincoln Center (SNF-LC) Agora Initiative, a collaboration to reactivate and reimagine public space in a new era for which SNF provided support as part of its $100 million global COVID-19 relief initiative.
