Ten large globe structures will make up a free public art trail across the Liverpool City Region, bringing to life the reality and impact of transatlantic slavery and inviting the public to think about ways to make racial justice a reality.

Running from 13 August to 31 October, there will be a walking trail of five large globes located around Liverpool city centre, with a further large globe in prominent locations in Halton, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens and the Wirral.

The World Reimagined Liverpool City Region Locations:

  • Halton – Spike Island, outside the Catalyst Museum
  • Knowsley – The Court Yard, Court Hey Park
  • Liverpool: Central library; Liverpool Anglican Cathedral; Rialto (Berkeley Square); Liverpool One (College Lane); Martin Luther King Building, Albert Dock.
  • Sefton – Marine Gardens, Waterloo
  • St Helens – Pilkington’s World of Glass Garden
  • Wirral – The Priory, Birkenhead

Commissioned artists have created thought-provoking globes responding to themes ranging from ‘Mother Africa’ and ‘The Reality of Being Enslaved’ to ‘Still We Rise’ and ‘Expanding Soul’.

The World Reimagined forms part of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s Race Equality Programme, which was established by Mayor Steve Rotheram in 2020.

The wider programme also includes a Race Equality Hub which is being co-designed with the local community.  With ring-fenced funding of £3.2m, this is the region’s biggest ever investment in tackling racial inequality.
