The World Re-imagined
103 unique globes across the UK exploring the history, legacy and future of the Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans through the work of incredible artists. Globes have been installed across the UK to create ten trails, including across seven London boroughs where you can explore and see for yourself the incredible art that has been inspired by the Journey of Discovery and the communities in which they are hosted. https://www.theworldreimagined.org/
The World Reimagined is a ground-breaking, UK art education project to transform how we understand the Transatlantic Trade in 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, inspiring and galvanising communities to better understand what it means to be Black and British. Bringing to life the reality and impact of the Transatlantic Slave Trade by remembering the past, whilst still moving forward - celebrating the spirit and culture that has endured so much suffering. The trails are at the centre of Learning, Community and Heritage programmes that invite everyone to take part. https://www.theworldreimagined.org/
The Stratford globe is part of the Hackney to Newham Trail. The globe leads us on a journey of discovery to Reimagine The Future. Reimagine The Future gives us free reign to image the society we can create when we have a full understanding of our full history; the place the UK holds in the world when it acknowledges its past; and ho we can be as people when we give full dignity to all.
