Description

The World Reimagined art trail starts in Peckham. Visitors can collect a physical map from Peckham Library or use the digital map and follow 11 globes along a path of learning and discovery that will take them to Brixton.

The World Reimagined looks at Africa before and during the Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans. It moves on to abolition, agency and emancipation. It touches on the Windrush Generation and how slavery still lives with us now. It also celebrates the many great Black leaders in fields from business to activism, and sport to the arts.

Artist Birungi Kawooya produced the first globe on Southwark’s art trail, now located on Peckham Square. Birungi was inspired through community workshops with members from Elim House and Peckham Platform.

Birungi said: “The globe was inspired by the participants tireless work, love and care that they pour in the community, so I decided to create a site of rest and restoration for them with a globe featuring tropical plant life that is reminiscent of their countries of origin. One of the participants brought a baby banana tree and I love banana trees, it was a match made in Peckham!”
