home live art, the innovative live art and performance company joins with The Friends of Arnold Circus to continue the Friends' tradition of an annual sharing picnic with the Sharing Picnic 100. This special event is designed to celebrate 100 years of the famous bandstand, Arnold Circus and its history as a vital community space at the heart of the Boundary Estate.
The Sharing Picnic 100 is a broad-based collaborative event - over 50 local artists from Shoreditch’s artist community join with local groups, schools, volunteers and neighbourhood businesses, to invite people to share in a vibrant community event around food and friendliness: a sumptuous picnic with cooking demonstrations, artists' food projects and the sharing table, an artists’ fair with participatory activities, installations and games and a bandstand music programme with brass bands, beat boxing, female rappers and more. The final challenge to cycle 100 times around the Circus will feature an extraordinary alternative vehicle parade by artists Francis Thorburn & Richard Elliott.
