When planning your design, there are a few things to bear in mind:

  1. When placed on the streets, each sculpture is bolted to a concrete plinth using fixings. Artists must keep the base area of the sculpture clear of any attachments.
  2. Your Globe design is completely up to you. The Globe is simply the surface for you to work on. Its shape references the geography of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and was chosen to give you the greatest possible canvas – it in no way dictates your design. We just ask that your design responds to one of our Journey of Discovery themes. Each theme will have an attached collection of historical research to help inspire you. We will continue to develop this resource until March 2022.
  3. The sculpture trails will be supported by an app and website. Audiences will use an app to access information about you, your work and the historical research around your chosen theme. If you would like there to be a digital element to your design, such as an activated soundscape or video, please contact us to discuss how we may facilitate this.
  4. Appropriate for public display: The audience will be wide ranging and of all ages. Designs that are overtly religious, political or sexual in nature will not be accepted. Additionally, neither corporate logos nor advertising is allowed. We cannot accept designs which infringe on 3rd party Intellectual Property, i.e. Star Wars, Disney, etc.The World Reimagined is an educational arts programme. Our mission is to create safe spaces where all members of the public can enter into conversations around The Transatlantic Slave Trade and its legacies. We are open and welcome audiences from all backgrounds to learn about our shared history. Please bear this in mind when you are developing your designs.
  5. Recommended materials: While we welcome all art forms, experience has taught us that collage and/or sticking paper or paper-based products onto the sculpture does not prove as effective as painting or mosaics. Please be aware that most of the sculptures will be positioned outside for 10 weeks exposed to the British weather. Artist materials are not provided. The use of water-based acrylic paints is recommended, although artificial resin paint or two-component paint can also be used to paint or spray a design. To complete your sculpture, it must be finished with a waterproof, non-yellowing varnish which will be provided.
