Mile End Park, Burdett Road, E3 (info: 0171-377 0481) to 19 JulReuse content
Shiny happy people will doubtless abound at tomorrow's launch of "Artsparkle: Midsummer Park Dreams", which brings a clutch of established artists into the East End until mid-July. The aim of the project is for the painters and sculptors to work with schools and community groups in the area to create five installations. These will form the centrepiece for workshops and art events, aimed at regenerating Mile End Park. Among those taking part is Kumiko Shimizu, who has had working associations with the East End for the past 20 years. Her sculpture installation, The Wild Life (right), inspired by Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, will be complemented by performance art, musicians, interactive video and the participation of pupils from local schools and the Uechi Ryu Karate Club. Others exhibiting include Maurice Agis, whose multi-coloured Dreamspace is also a sight to behold. The grand opening of all the installations takes place from 3pm tomorrow. You have been warned.
