Quiet Lunch

Quiet Lunch Cerebral Sustenance Daily for the Tortured Worker Bee, Carefree Unemployed Hipster… For You, For Us, For All.
Online magazine and hard copy distributed around the world. Launching a cultural revolution one story and one artist at a time.

Your online source for creative sustenance daily.

Mission: What started as an online blog by Akeem Duncan of the Bronx back in 2010, Quiet Lunch–as of May 2016– is now an internationally distributed arts and culture magazine found in over 500 bookstores around the world and in every Barnes & Noble in America. Owned and operated by Akeem and his publishing partners Gregory de la Haba and Bim Star, the Quiet Lunch team is constantly growing and joined by key "Influencers" from all parts of the globe every week and morphing into a media powerhouse with an ever expanding readership and partnerships with major publishers and corporations. Yet our core principles of promoting various aspects of life and culture with a loving but brute educational tinge remain unhinged. When we say, "Cerebral Sustenance Daily," we mean it. We wish to provoke your thoughts while tickling your funny bone. And may you discover a Quiet Lunch all for yourself. Join us at our table, won't you?

Making Space: Politics of Space A Triumph by Long Island City Artists and Sculptors Guild | Quiet Lunch.

Space can be a fraught term: as both abstract concept and concrete marker, space delineates a potentiality waiting to be made manifest.

It's been "stay inside weather" in San Francisco recently, or at least that's how the artist Joe Roberts, who's lived in the city for 20 years, describes it over the phone. As pretty much everyone knows, massive, increasingly destructive fires have been ripping across the state of California (most h...

Idle hands aren't always doing the devil's work; but then again that all depends on what you consider to be deviltry.
