Swansea art trail sculptures united as free attraction

Swansea’s 10 globes from its city centre public art trail are being displayed in one place for the first time to create a unique, educational experience.

The free spectacle of The World Reimagined sculptures all together is perfect for people looking for some free time well-spent during October – Black History Month.

They’ll be in their new location – between the St David’s and St Mary’s churches – until early November.

The sculptures are an invitation to talk about how the past – particularly the former Transatlantic Trade in Enslaved Africans – shapes the future.

Until last week placed as a walkable trail, the globes have now come together.

Michelle Gayle, co-founder of The World Reimagined, said: “We hope that people will visit the globes in St David’s Square.”

Council cabinet member Elliott King said: “In 2020, along with others in the city, we made a commitment to better reflect the history and cultural heritage of all our communities. Through the work of our cultural and community services we continue to honour this pledge.”

The project is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the council and others
