This family-friendly empathy workshop explores empathy as a practical tool and tangible material that you can touch, see, feel and play with.

Come and make your own collection of empathy tools led by artist Enni-Kukka Tuomala, the artist behind the Nunnery Gallery’s new exhibition exploring empathy.

This event is part of Is there space for empathy?, an exhibition by Finnish artist Enni-Kukka Tuomala, which examines what empathy means in 2021, in a post-Brexit, post-covid, post-colonial Britain.

Tuomala looks at what role empathy can play in helping us re-enter public life and re-discover physical closeness with each other once again. Her installation makes empathy – an often abstract and intangible feeling – into a physical and tangible form we can see and feel.

All ages are welcome and materials will be provided. Please book a free ticket if you plan to attend to help us manage the event safely. For more info on events including access, covid-19 guidelines and how to book please visit the website.
