A family friendly empathy workshop, exploring empathy as a practical tool and a tangible material that you can touch, see, feel and play with. Come and make your own collection of empathy tools! Led by artist Enni-Kukka Tuomala, the artist behind the Nunnery Gallery’s new exhibition exploring empathy.
All ages welcome; materials will be provided. 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.
