Please note the date change, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

A session for local Bow artists to connect with each other, with ourselves, and with our environment. The workshop will be led by artist Enni-Kukka Tuomala, who has run 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. This is a free event but please book 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, feel and enter.  

The event will take place outdoors in Bow Arts' courtyard (with cover from the elements), with COVID-19 safety measures in place. You can read our COVID-19 access statement here.
