Henry Timms, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, visits Athens as part of the SNF-LC Agora Initiative

Keynote speech on New Power & Cultural Leadership, followed by an open discussion

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) is proud to announce that as part of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation-Lincoln Center (SNF-LC) Agora Initiative, a collaboration between the SNF and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts that aims to help reexamine and redefine cultural engagement within public spaces, Henry Timms, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lincoln Center, will join us for a public event hosted at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) on Thursday, March 17, at 19.00.

Henry Timms will discuss his work on the changing nature of power, and how this has led to the emergence of a "new power," along with the implications, challenges, and opportunities this entails for culture and the notion of leadership, within the context of current global affairs. He will also share insights on leadership, organizational models, and audience development in the cultural sector, as well as on the changing role of cultural institutions within society at large.

Following a keynote speech from Timms, entitled New Power & Cultural Leadership, an open discussion will take place between Timms, a group of panelists, and the audience. Panelists include Deputy Minister of Culture and Sports responsible for Contemporary Culture Nicholas Yatromanolakis, SNF Co-Chief Programs & Strategic Initiatives Officer Stelios Vassilakis, and SNFCC Managing Director Elly Andriopoulou.

The SNF-LC Agora Initiative began in late 2020 with a grant from SNF. Through the initiative, Lincoln Center's iconic 16-acre Manhattan campus serves as an agora, a public gathering place at the heart of NYC's civic life, through artistic and community activations. A centerpiece of the initiative is fostering a connection and collaboration between Lincoln Center in New York City and the SNFCC in Athens as both seek to reimagine and reactivate public spaces for a new era through international "Twin Agoras."

The public discussion is part of this collaborative framework, that is centered on a visit to the SNFCC by Timms and a leadership team from Lincoln Center that aims to connect them with their SNFCC counterparts, and consequently foster the exchange of expertise and best practices, and the sharing of their respective experiences in creating spaces for people to gather and enjoy art within urban landscapes.

Thursday, 17/03 | 19.00 (EET)

Lighthouse, SNFCC

The panel discussion will be held in English, with simultaneous interpretation into Greek.
The event will be available online via live-streaming.
