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.
