Imagination is vital when we are looking to the future. Through our work, the Futures Forum has supported various artists, writers and thinkers, to look creatively at how Scotland might change.
Please note that Scotland’s Futures Forum exists to encourage debate on Scotland’s long-term future and we aim to share a range of perspectives. The views expressed in these reflections are those of the creator and do not necessarily reflect the Futures Forum’s views.
