About GalleryRetail

Aside from the need for food, shelter, and clothing your support is crucial to our work, THANK YOU!

GalleryRetail, a prosocial creative service agency, led the adaptation of the First Fridays concept for the Newark area in the summer of 2017. In 2021, with the communities we serve, we are building on our flagship with bigger productions and new products. With a cross-sector collective of creatives, equally determined to not only exemplify Newark's aesthetic also curate renowned art, music, food, and culture of the global trooper, regularly. Newark needs to reclaim the narrative and properly present all its talents and offerings, more than ever:

With that, we are incorporating the revamped Newark Creatives Guide into Newark First Fridays' regular programming to continue to inform and connect our neighbors and peers to important resources while providing competitive honorariums to performing creatives and emerging artists.

Our goal is to fundraise to pay emerging creatives and invest in, especially Black-owned, local businesses as we activate the city and area over the course of the year. Our goal is to continue to raise funds on a monthly basis to continue to grow and enhance our premium experiences to the Greater Newark Area and troopers worldwide.

ACTIVATIONS —
Newark Fête
Our MONTHLY dance party will be back ! Come fête with us — celebrate the culture.

More Productions
We are connecting with our partners and local businesses to continue to bring you quality experiences that mutually support the establishments and creatives.

Staple Festival
Furthermore, Newark First Fridays, May through September, we will continue to host art experiences: dozens of artisans and art & crafts vendors, musicians, and virtual performances while highlighting the local businesses, galleries, and creative spaces that are supporting our community.

We strive to continue to provide arts experiences for the community and guests to come together to celebrate, sustain & support the local economy.

Each month we aim to attract hundreds of Newarkers and guests while seeking to incubate and support dozens of artists and small businesses during this time.

CRITERIA + IMPACT —
We have the desire to develop a sustainable model to support local creatives and seek to prioritize local talent we may collaborate with or hire to perform virtually and safely. 
WE WANT TO RAISE AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE:
  • With just $2,000/month we give 10 local artists a gig each month
  • $15K will allow us to hire 100 creatives
OR
  • $30K will allow us to provide honorarium funds to 200 creatives
  • $100K will ensure funds for over 660 residents
