Presented over three months, Impact Long Island (ILI) is a rigorous blend of formal classes, individualized training, networking and group interaction based on the curriculum of the MARK Program. ILI is presented by Long Island based NYFA Statewide Alumni Consultants and NYFA MARK Alumni. ILI is a sister program to the NYFA MARK program specifically geared towards the needs of visual artists residing on Long Island. The program will help Long Island based artists acquire resources for local, national and international opportunities.
