About Bailey’s Café
Bailey’s Café is a space of community healing and belonging — a secular church, a home, a kitchen table. Bailey’s welcomes all with an open heart, compassion and love, generating a culture of belongingness, non-judgment, acceptance, community, and space to be your full self. This is Bailey’s unique value.
In Virtual & Physical Spaces
Bailey’s Café presents As Quiet As It’s Kept (AQAIK), a multi-discipline performance installation based on the stories of veterans of color and their role in a changing community under the artistic leadership of Monica L. Williams in collaboration with artists from various genres:
Kadeem Alston Roman, Zoe Flowers, Michael Hill, Anna Pond, DJ Reborn, Robyn Twomey

The Sankofa Residency Showing
Sunday, October 24 2-4pm
446 Tompkins Avenue (@ Macon Street)
The Sankofa Residency is a multi-phase project that is both rooted in the history of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY, and an afro-futurist imagining of BedStuy moving forward. Taking the Ghanaian concept of Sankofa-looking backwards in order to move forward-this project uses research, oral history, and collaborative imagining to facilitate a plan for residents, businesses, and stakeholders to emerge from COVID in a place of healing, thriving, and progress.
Come join us on Oct. 24th anytime from 2-4pm for interactive games, art making, storytelling and dance performances by Kendra J. Ross, Brittany Grier, and Bailey’s Cafe.
FREE! Welcome to all ages!

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"
