An exploration of home, community service and legacy.
As Quiet As It’s Kept (AQAIK), Bailey’s Cafe multidisciplinary artist in residency special project, started in 2013, was originally based on the stories of veterans of color, their experiences in combat and with returning home. As AQAIK evolved the voices of long time community members were included to contrast the stories of those who leave to become veterans and those who stay to become veterans of their community. As time passes, what are the changes that occur inside and around them? How do ideas of home, community, identity and honor shape a rapidly changing neighborhood? AQAIK was created through a collaborative process, under the artistic direction of Monica L. Williams with artists from various genres: Kadeem Alston Roman, Zoe Flowers, Michael Hill, Anna Pond, DJ Reborn, Robyn Twomey.
