In June 2021, we awarded £44,472 to The World Reimagined to fund and deliver their Learning Programme in 14 schools and colleges. As part of the programme, students and teachers created their own Globe sculptures, which are now on display in libraries around London.
In June 2021, we awarded £44,472 to The World Reimagined to fund and deliver their Learning Programme in 14 schools and colleges – one in each of our inner London boroughs.
Designed as a transformative journey for students, teachers and schools, the Learning Programme promotes racial justice and harmony by raising understanding of the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
Within the programme, schools are provided with free resources, Teacher Leadership Development training and the opportunity to create their own Globe sculpture.
These Globe sculptures form part of The World Reimagined’s mass-participation project, where hundreds of schools, community groups, institutions and artists have created globe sculptures responding to different themes.
The globes created by the 14 London schools are displayed at libraries around London, while the artist-designed globes form sculpture trails in cities across the UK, including the City of London.
Stepney All Saints Secondary School and the Aldgate Primary School – of which The Portal trust is Trustee – are two of the schools that participated in the Learning Programme and currently have their globes displayed at Shoe Lane Library and Canning Town Library.
Make sure to visit the Globes and follow the artist sculpture trail in London! You can learn more about the project and their locations by visiting The World Reimagined Website.
