The time is now:
A historic moment
for racial justice.

The World Reimagined is a ground-breaking, national art education project to transform how we understand the Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans and its impact on all of us.

For too long, the history of the Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans has been untold, mistaught or misrepresented. In the UK, we celebrate with pride the Trade’s abolition - but the people who were enslaved and their descendants; Britain’s role in the Trade’s creation; and the Trade’s devastating legacy are usually missing from how history is told. This is not ‘Black History’, this is all of our history.

We are living in a key moment for racial justice. It calls on us to courageously face our shared history with honesty, empathy and grace.

Together, we can create a future in which all can say:

I am seen.

That is the mission of The World Reimagined.

What's going on

The latest News, Events and Opportunities from The World Reimagined.

The World Reimagined will see trails of large Globe sculptures in cities across the UK in August-October of 2022, created by artists to bring to life the reality and impact of the Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans.

The Globes will be created by both established and undiscovered artists, alongside Globes created through unique collaborations that bring together communities and icons with artists.

The trails will be the centre of a broader learning and engagement programme - with hundreds of schools, community groups, sporting and cultural institutions taking part across the country. ​

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.

Journey of Discovery

Join our Journey of Discovery – 9 themes that give us the opportunity to reimagine our past, present and future.

In the coming months, we'll be sharing a collection of stories, images and artefacts that vividly bring to life our shared history.

Our Journey of Discovery is the foundation of all that we do.

03Stolen Legacy: The Rebirth of a Nation

Stolen Legacy: The Rebirth of a Nation

Stolen Legacy: The Rebirth of a Nation brings to life how Britain was transformed as a result of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and the free labour of the enslaved. It explores the legacy of the Transatlantic Slave Trade in building the financial and trading power of Britain; strengthening the Church and the might of universities; and establishing dynastic influence and power.

Reimagine the Future

Reimagine the Future gives us free rein to imagine the society we can create when we have a full understanding of our shared history; the place the UK can hold in the world when it acknowledges its past; and who we can be as people when we give full dignity to all.

For decades, people, organisations and communities have been doing the powerful, often unheralded work of making racial justice a reality and bringing this history into the light. In each of our host cities, we are working and will work closely with communities to co-create spaces for dialogue; to honour and share what they do; and to invite more people to support their work.

After The World Reimagined trails leave our host cities, we will auction the Globes to raise funds to create a grant-making programme for racial justice projects and organisations across the UK.


The World Reimagined is being delivered the only way a national healing and racial justice project can be: with the support and involvement of leading organisations across sectors. Our partnerships offer a truly meaningful way to make real your commitments to racial justice, with deep community, national and global engagement for you, your teams and clients.

Join the pioneering organisations who are part of The World Reimagined family and make a powerful statement about the world you and your organisation want to create.
