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.



Visit the world’s first creative space dedicated to empathy and community, take part in family friendly art activities, make new connections with other local residents, and learn more about 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-19, 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, feel and enter.
