EXPAND YOUR HORIZON INCUBATION PROGRAM

The Incubation Program allows select local artists the opportunity to learn the business side of artistry and polish their craft.

In keeping with the Lincoln Theatre’s mission of developing local, emerging artists, the Lincoln and the Greater Columbus Arts Council have partnered to offer the Expand Your Horizon Incubation Program, a Lincoln signature program that will allow select local artists the opportunity to learn the business side of artistry and polish their craft.

This 12-month program includes webinars, workshops, Lincoln-sponsored programs, and community events. Participants will increase their knowledge of the industry, establish a local networking base, and learn the necessary tools to take their creative career to the next level.

The Expand Your Horizon Incubation Program has graduated over 125 local artists. This signature program was designed for local artist development, which has exceeded its humble beginning, since 2014.

In 2022, we added coaches to assist annual cohorts through the yearlong educational process of learning the business of their artistry. These coaches are past alums of the program and were selected to support and guide the artists to completion of the program.
