Newham supports artists’ open call for World Reimagined project

Globes Go Live in Newham

This summer, you are invited to take a journey of discovery across Newham and Hackney through a sculpture trail that explores the many layers of our shared history, and how we can all make racial justice a reality. From 13 August until 31 October, The World Reimagined will transform the streets with a free art trail of 10 Globe sculptures - each designed by an individual artist who is responding to themes ranging from Mother Africa to Still We Rise and Expanding Soul.

The locations of the globes in Newham are:

  • Olympic Park at Tavern in the Park
  • By Sidings Street Bus Stop, Olympic Park 
  • Stratford Broadway
  • Theatre Square 
  • Stratford International

The trail takes place at the same time as trails in six other cities as The World Reimagined invites people across the UK to acknowledge this history, and support the work of brilliant community activists and organisations. Supported by Newham Council, the globes will 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.

The trail will shine a bold new light on the Newham and bring people together to exchange experiences, creativity, stories and ideas on some of the biggest questions for our future.

Join us from 13 August as we reimagine the world together.
