Blueprint for the Future

Lead Artist and Creative Learning Project Officer,

Edinburgh International Festival 2017

Blueprint for the Future was a visual art project working with Secondary School Pupils across the city of Edinburgh. 

In asking the pupils to imagine a future world, and to pen a letter to their current selves from that imagined future, the project encouraged pupils to consider how they might like to shape their future and asks its participants to consider what impact they can make on the world around them as well as their place within society today.

We worked with the students to explore their ideas using an early photography process called cyanotype. Old School Fabrications created a temporary pavilion installation to showcase the student's work in the Old College Quad during Edinburgh International Festival.
