Launch of The World Reimagined

Join us on College Green for the launch of The World Reimagined – a free art trail of ten globe sculptures located around Bristol.

From 13 August until 31 October, The World Reimagined will transform Bristol’s streets with a free art trail of globes – each designed by an individual artist. The globes invite us to explore the many layers of our shared history, and how we can all make racial justice a reality. 

The globes have been created by artists from Bristol and across the UK, bringing the city to life with diverse experiences and creative styles. They include Emma Blake Morsi, 3Dom, Godfried Donkor, Adam Grose, Bandele Iyapo, Felix FLX Braun, Oshii and Jasmine Thompson. A tenth Globe has been created by the Bristol-based artist Michele Curtis.

The globes bring people, families and communities together to talk about how we understand our history; how our past shapes our future; and how we can act for social change.
