Museums and galleries across the UK are subject to temporary closures. Those that remain open have safety measures in place, please remember to check venue guidelines before visiting.



This workshop will be led by Enni-Kukka Tuomala for local Bow artists to connect with each other, with themselves, and with the environment.

Enni-Kukka Tuomala has experience running projects on empathy with everyone from the Finnish government to the BBC.

The Nunnery Café will be open late for drinks afterward for a chance to continue the conversation. Please book ahead if you plan to attend to help us manage the event safely.

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.
