Friends of the Gallery

FOG is an organisation of volunteers, working to promote visual art in Zimbabwe. Our main aim is to assist the National Gallery of Zimbabwe through adding to the permanent collection, funding main tenace activities and creating an awareness of the gallery’s activities. Our special focus this year is on funding Zimbabwe’s participation in the prestigious Venice Biennale in Italy. This year we have decided to hold a food fair on the 6th of July 2013 to support the event.

Our Fundraising Event

The theme of our food fair is: Celebrating the Art of Food (and Drink). The fair itself will be held in the Gallery Gardens between Julius Nyerere Way and Park Lane. The event shall be open to the public and run from 10am to 7pm in the evening. We hope to attract a wide variety of exhibitors in the food and beverage industry, as well as to crafters. Those wishing to exhibit will pay a fee to hire out a stall for the day.

The benefits of taking part in the Friends of the Gallery food fair are:

• Increased product and brand visibility

• The opportunity to sell goods and services

• The opportunity to network with others in the business

What We Provide

As has been noted, The Friends of the Gallery will be making available stalls for hire on the day. There are 39 food and beverage stalls, 20 craft stalls and three corporate gazebos available for hire. The stall package will include, a table, two chairs, a canvas sun shield and security. The Gazebo will come with two tables. Exhibitors will need to bring their own tablecloths, cooking equipment, serving solutions etc. The costs of hiring for the day are detailed here: – Art of Food promo pack 6 July (1).
