Thank you for helping to ensure that our arts community has the support it needs for a brilliant next act.

The severe impact to the arts on Long Island has made our work more urgent and important than ever. We are dedicated to assisting in the efforts to restart and revitilize our communities through the arts.

Here’s what we're doing to help:

    • We have developed and launched the LI ARTS & Culture Events Calendar  that features all the ways your arts community is keeping you virtually entertained, inspired, and connected during this troubling time. Members are invited to submit unlimited events for free to directly connect with a targeted audience through an easy-to-navigate, self-publishing calendar, weekly emailed event newsletters, and social media promotions.
    • Our email newsletter was adapted from a biannual publication soliciting memberships and announcing programs, into a bi-weekly (often weekly) trove of valuable resources for our stakeholders. The newsletter was used as a tool to share new funding opportunities, upcoming deadlines, workshops, artist opportunities, and timely communications.
    • Our Arts Management Forums went virtual and addressed relevant topics and provided trainings led by local leaders, and regional experts in a variety of fields including: Valuing Art in the Era of COVID-19; Annual Appeal Messaging During a Pandemic; Not-For-Profit Marketing Strategies; and more.
    • We are supporting advocacy efforts at the local and state level to make sure the arts and cultural sector have a voice in the strategy to reopen the economy.
    • We waived all membership dues for all levels in 2020. While they are modest amounts, we understand that every dollar was precious during the shutdown.
    • We are collaborating across sectors, including restaurants, hospitality, and transportation, to welcome you back when it’s safe to return.
    • As a part of an ongoing goal to measure the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the arts and cultural organizations that serve Nassau and Suffolk counties we ran arts impact surveys in March, September, and again in February. The goal of these surveys were to understand the impact COVID-19 had on Long Island’s arts and culture sector as well as to use the research and data collected to help guide the work and next steps.

Contributions to LIAA help us keep membership fees affordable and provide essential funding for networking, professional development programs, advocacy initiatives, and member services aimed at promoting and nurturing a vibrant cultural community across Long Island. Your donation will fund programs like those mentioned above, while also ensuring the future of the arts on Long Island is protected through our continued work.

A gift to LIAA is a direct investment in the future health of Long Island's creative ecology and those arts organizations you love by supporting programming and artist opportunities that are a the core of our mission. Your gift allows LIAA to forge a path forward and help restore the rich vibrancy of Long Island's arts sector, making our community a better place for everyone.
