Artworks exploring migration, colonialism, slavery, under-representation and injustice developed by BLKBRD Collective in collaboration with Royal Museums Greenwich will be on display.

Artworks from the Ghost Meridian collaborative project between street artists BLKBRD Collective and Royal Museums Greenwich will be on display . The project was prompted by the Covid-19 crisis and the #BlackLivesMatter movement and explores themes of migration, colonialism, slavery, under-representation and injustice. Banners produced by BLKBRD Collective, in collaboration with Action for Refugees in Lewisham, Greenwich Inclusion Project and Barnet Refugee Service, will be on display outside the National Maritime Museum. Inside the National Maritime Museum visitors will be able to view a large-scale work, intended as a sail for Cutty Sark. This sail showcases artwork by BLKBRD Collective responding to the theme of 'Togetherness'.
