Bailey’s Café is a Brooklyn-based, 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to providing creative and collaborative environments to communities across New York City. We create these types of environments through partnerships with local leaders and inter-generational volunteers, all focused on community-building through service and the arts.
Living in Possibility; Being Possibility: an exploration of authenticity, mental health and kindness, the Culminating Performance for Bailey’s Arts-Based Rites of Passage Program, takes place Friday, August 16th, 6 PM to 7:30 PM at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church, 265 Decatur Street (2 blocks from Bailey’s) between Stuyvesant and Lewis. Please join us to celebrate our hardworking young people and the artists co-creating with them. All ages are welcome! Learn More Here
Testimonials from the Bailey’s Community
"I did not know anything about theater and the arts until I met Ms. Kymbali. Now I have picked up some of her attributes and I am able to lead the group in warm ups and other theater games. Bailey’s Café is more than an arts program in that it helps you further your growth emotionally, spiritually, and every way."
"Now I am more connected and more decisive. I want to be strong and have my voice heard, to be more articulate and stand up for myself."
"This is my second time being with this group and I never expected i would have been doing what I was doing – thought I would just come and observe-here i am acting. It is like therapy, like group therapy it fits in there somewhere. It is a great opportunity to work with young people."
"We are pushing to meet somewhere in the middle (youth and elders) so we can just become one community…we have drifted as a people…we are pushing for something better in the community"
