Manchester Central Library (Performance Space)
St Peter’s Square
Join Keisha and three wonderful creatives as they go on a journey through the senses. Tolu Ajayi (musician), Maya Chowdhry (live artist) and Sam Remi-Akinwale (spoken artist) will share performances and objects that trigger the senses as they consider what the future holds for people of colour. Be prepared to be soothed, provoked and fed in more ways than one.
