In a time of constant change and overlapping challenges, how are Newark’s most creative thinkers working, evolving – and thriving?

Join us every Tuesday at 6PM on Instagram Live to have an in-depth conversation with the young innovators who’ve made this city’s tight-knit community one of the most diverse, interesting, and active in the state.

You’ll be able to ask them questions about their work, their response to the pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter movement – and learn more about the energy that’s making New Jersey’s largest city so resilient.

This week, meet Isaiah “Zay” Little, Creative Director & Founder of GalleryRetail and Newark First Fridays, and Manager of Digital Marketing at the Greater Newark Convention & Visitors Bureau. Isaiah has also worked with several community organizations, including Global Shapers Newark, Weequahic Park Association, and Code for Newark. Born into a large family of Newarkers, who settled here generations ago during the Second Great Migration, he is truly a son of the city. Isaiah is a creative entrepreneur, technologist, urbanist, and public servant who brings his passion for design and for community-building into all his projects.
