Tolu Ajayi (musician), Maya Chowdhry (live artist) and Sam Remi-Akinwale (spoken artist) were all asked to pick five items that triggered one of the five senses and also represented the future for them. In a wonderful performance meets roundtable event. The four artists considered what the future holds for people of colour. Audiences were soothed, provoked and fed in more ways than one.
