Art Pavilion Exhibition: A New Home (1-23 Feb)

Leather and silicone 18cm x 26cm x 3cm
Lidija Antanasijevic — In Transit
Leather and silicone 18cm x 26cm x 3cm


This mixed media exhibition features works by members of the East London Printmakers print studio and guest artists. The theme is ‘belonging’, and it explores issues around identity, migration and a sense of home. As East London has been a gateway for centuries for those who have crossed continents to make a new home in the UK, it is a very apt time and place to display thought-provoking and adept creative responses to this theme. There will be a series of accompanying workshops and events.

There are also a series of workshops to accompany this exhibition - details here for the 'Traditional Pub Games session - www.towerhamletsarts.org.uk and here -www.towerhamletsarts.org.uk for the 'Build a Dragon' Workshop.

Safer Neighbourhood Meeting 22nd February



Park users may wish to attend the above meeting.

Over the past few months an increase in anti-social behaviour in Mile End Park has led police to increase patrols there. In December two were arrested after they were found with a stolen moped that had been linked with a number of robberies in the vicinity. In January another two were arrested: one for drug offences and another for public order offences. Weapon sweeps have also been used to great effect in the area.
