Walthamstow Wetlands and the William Morris Gallery are hosting a year-long celebration of the Finnish artist Tove Jansson, starting with an enchanting indoor exhibition and outdoor trail opening to the public on 18 June 2021 at Walthamstow Wetlands. The programme draws on the parallels between the island of Klovharun in the Finnish archipelago, where Tove Jansson spent her summers immersed in nature, and the scenery at Walthamstow Wetlands which is Europe’s largest urban wetlands and has eight islands of its own.
The Finnish Institute supports the programme with additional funding from Svenska Kulturfonden.
