The World Reimagined is a ground-breaking, national art education project to transform how we understand the Transatlantic Slave Trade and its impact on all of us.
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 Slave Trade. The trails will be the centre of a broader public engagement programme – with hundreds of community groups, sporting and cultural institutions taking part across the country.
The foundation of all of our work is our Journey of Discovery – a narrative framework of nine themes that gives us the opportunity to reimagine our past, present and future.
