Amarachi Okafor raises pertinent questions that plague us as peoples within society. Questions such as: what kind of a society are we? What are we teaching generations now, and how do we go about this? Are we developed societies? What does this mean? Do we build trust, extend care, render help? Do we respect one another and constituted authorities? With Nigeria and Indonesia, colonial domination changed us but as peoples,what is original or indigenous about us? Through this work, Okafor invites audiences to participate in art activities with thoughts on in-depth significance of learning, its processes and content. Participants deliberate, relate with one another, and respond to issues by writing on platforms provided by the artist
