In conversation with Foday Dumbuya (Labrum London), Thomas J Price, Christine Checinska (V&A Museum) and Ashley Shaw Scott Adjaye (The World Reimagined)
Civic art offer moments of delight and respite in public spaces, and they can also hold power to be an educational tool. The World Reimagined is a series of specially designed public artworks as part of a UK-wide art and education initiative aimed to transform how we understand the Transatlantic Slave Trade and its impact. Join Ashley Shaw Scott Adjaye, artistic director of The World Reimagined; Foday Dumbuya, fashion designer and artist of one of the 130 globes; and artist Thomas J Price, who was commissioned to create a permanent public sculpture to honour the Windrush Generation. Chaired by Christine Checinska.
