In this week’s episode, Brain & Life Podcast host Dr. Daniel Correa discusses the Lincoln Center Arts Programs with their Director of Accessibility Miranda Hoffner. She shares the Lincoln Center’s commitment to transforming performing arts spaces to be more inclusive of audiences’ identities and access needs by design, not as an afterthought or add-on. They discuss the Lincoln Center’s accessibility programs and how they have evolved over time with accommodations like online performances and relaxed showings, as well as Lincoln Center Moments, a free performance-based program specially designed for individuals with dementia and their caregivers.
