Tower Hamlets art regeneration event under DLR

Adventures On The Underline was an art and music event beneath the Isle Of Dogs DLR tracks organised by Tower Hamlets Council on 14 May.

As part of the DLR Underline Activation Project created by Tower Hamlets’ regeneration team, it explored creative ways to benefit the community utilising the empty space under the DLR.

Activities, including live music, street art, circus and parkour were free and spread across Crossharbour, South Quay and Marsh Wall.

Eva Thomas, an event ambassador, said: “People really like the initiative of using the space and also creating events for the kids.”

The event also took place around the business area Canary Wharf and Cynthia Franklin, stage manager at a circus company, said: “I would have never thought something like this would be in this area.”

In fact, local creatives were displaced because of regeneration in the 80s and 90s.

The event included a photography exhibition curated by Mike Seaborne, visual historian, to tell the unique story of the Isle of Dogs.
