This will be a great discussion led by Aoife Donnelly and Kristin Trommler which Adesola will be speaking at, bringing together her work with architecture and design and the dance performance that we toured last year 'Light Steps' and 'Found'. Whitechapel Gallery is a short walk away from where Adesola went to school herself, "so it's nice to be back in the manor to talk about dance/art/design and learning!" (Adesola Akinleye)
