The World’s Reimagined comes to Liverpool Cathedral

This image displays the World Reimagined Globe.

Liverpool Cathedral is delighted to host one of ten large globe structures which make up a public art trail across the Liverpool City Region. The globe will be with us from August 13th until October 31st.

The globes make up The World Reimagined, a ground-breaking, UK-wide art education project. The project aims to bring to life the reality and impact of transatlantic slavery inviting the public to think about ways to make racial justice a reality.

Our globe – the reality of Being Enslaved – is one of five on a walking tour of Liverpool City centre which also includes locations at Liverpool: Central library; Rialto (Berkeley Square); Liverpool One (College Lane); Martin Luther King Building, Albert Dock.

You can see the city tour here. Other globes have been placed in locations in Halton, Knowsley, Sefton and Wirral and you can see the city region tour here

Dean Sue said “we’re proud to be able to host one of these thought-provoking globes. We have recognised for many years the church’s historic involvement in transatlantic slavery and as a cathedral, alongside many other partners have been working to reflect on that legacy and how we can be part of a better future for all. Hosting a globe helps us, and others reflect and we hope that all engage with this in a strong, positive way.”
