A SERIES of globe sculptures are set to be installed across Leeds as part of an art exhibition dedicated to promoting racial justice and equality.

‘The World Reimagined’ will be on display at 10 locations across the city, between August 13 and October 31.

The project, which will take the form of a trail, aims to educate about issues such as the slave trade and the contribution of black culture and music to modern Britain.

The globes themselves have been designed by 10 different artists from across the UK and the exhibition is going on display in six other cities around the country this summer.

Documents attached to the planning application for the sculptures, submitted by The World Reimagined, said: “We are living in a key moment for racial justice and it calls on us to courageously face our shared history with honesty, empathy and grace so we can create a new future in which all can say: I am seen.That is the mission of The World Reimagined.”

The locations of the sculptures will be:

Norma Hutchinson Park, Chapeltown Road.

Lovell Park, close to Little London.

The Merrion Centre, city centre.

Queen Square, Clay Pit Lane.

Henry Moore Institute.


Victoria Leeds.

Kirkgate Market.
