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.
For too long, the history of the Transatlantic Slave Trade 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.
We are inviting schools, colleges and community groups that work with young people to take part in The World Reimagined as part of your commitment to racial justice.
Created with artists, teachers and educationalists, our Learning Programme is an experiential and transformative journey for students, teachers and schools, formed of three parts:
Primary Schools – Our resources focus on the theme of Mother Africa to build a new understanding of where this story begins and enable students to understand, honour and celebrate a vivid history of Africa.
Secondary Schools & Colleges – Our resources will include a module for each of the nine themes of the Journey of Discovery, with extension activities that enable you to create the learning experience that is right for your students.
