The World Reimagined is a ground-breaking, UK art education project to transform how we understand the Transatlantic trade of Enslaved Africans and its impact on all of us so that we can make racial justice a reality, together. Supported by official presenting partner SKY, the project will see a trail of large Globe sculptures across seven cities including: Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool City Region, London and Swansea. From 13 August to 31 October 2022, the globes will be displayed across these cities, each responding to an element of historic slavery. The trails are at the centre of learning, community and heritage programmes that invite everyone to take part. The World Reimagined is a vibrant project that will inspire pride in what it means to be Black and British and help us all better understand what it means to be British. The World Reimagined artist residencies have been funded by The Arts Council England.
