About the tour

Enjoy the beauty and splendour of Nicola Green’s globe, ‘The World in a waterlily, Amazonica’ - the penultimate stop on the Camden to Westminster trail of The World Reimagined, an art education initiative about the transatlantic trade in enslaved Africans and its impact which is taking place in seven cities across the nation until 31 October.

Nicola’s brightly coloured sparkling globe represents the deep-rooted connection between racial justice and climate justice – the intrinsic connection between the historic oppression of people, and the exploitation of the world’s natural resources. Nicola’s globe is enveloped by the Guiana Shield - one of the largest remaining intact rainforests on earth with a sky bursting with black and brown angels embellished with 24k gold. Beneath the forest is the sea and a map which reimagines the world as a water lily.
