About

Lincoln Calling is a 501c(3) non profit organization bringing communities together through innovative programming and immersive cultural experiences.

Lincoln Calling advances music, art, and education through creative community activation.

Our annual fall festival is a celebration of music and art that embraces discovery and imagination.

Our goal is to produce events and curate discussions that uplift underrepresented communities; LC provides a platform for individuals and community partners from diverse backgrounds to come together to further their mission. It is our hope that attendees will be able to identify with our performers, artists, and speakers and feel moved to engage with the arts and culture our state has to offer – positively impacting the city of Lincoln.
