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.
This event is part of ‘Is there space for empathy?’, an exhibition by Finnish artist Enni-Kukka Tuomala, which examined what empathy meant 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 made 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 (with cover from the elements), with COVID-19 safety measures in place. You can read our COVID-19 access statement here.
