HUB sponsors art trail in Leeds and Birmingham

We are very proud to be sponsoring a ground-breaking art trail in two of the cities that are home to new HUB projects.

The World Reimagined is a vibrant art education project to transform how we understand the Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans and its impact on all of us so that we can make racial justice a reality, together. Supported by Official Presenting Partner SKY, the project will see a trail of large Globe sculptures across seven cities including: Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool City Region, London, and Swansea.

From 13 August to 31 October 2022, the globes will be displayed across these cities, inspiring and galvanising communities to better understand what it means to be Black and British. Bringing to life the reality and impact of the Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans by remembering the past, whilst still moving forward - celebrating the spirit and culture that has endured so much suffering.

We have teamed-up with our funding partner Bridges Fund Management, the specialist sustainable and impact investor, to sponsor a globe in Leeds, not far from our Latitude Blue and Latitude Purple projects.

Our funding partner MARK, the real estate investment management firm, is joining us to sponsor a globe in Birmingham, located near our Snow Hill project.
