The World Reimagined
The Liverpool City Region is one of seven areas across the UK involved in The World Reimagined – a ground-breaking, national art education project to transform how we understand the Transatlantic Slave Trade and its impact on all of us.
It is made up of large globe structures to encourage conversations around racial equality and justice and linked deeply to where people live.
The project is part of our Race Equality Programme that Mayor Steve Rotheram established in 2020 and we are the only city region and only North-West area to participate.Watch the video
What is there to see during Black History Month?
The World Reimagined is made up of a walking trail of five large globes located around Liverpool city centre, with five more in prominent locations in Halton, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens and the Wirral.
In addition to the larger globes, another 41 smaller learning globes have been created by 30 schools and 11 community organisations.
They aim to tell the story of those who were enslaved and their descendants; Britain’s role in the Trade’s creation; and its devastating legacy.
The globes will be in place until the end of October and offer a learning experience for people of all ages during Black History Month.View the trail
