The Edinburgh International Festival presents Blueprint for the Future; a free art installation showcasing the work of Edinburgh high school pupils, displayed in a specially-crafted pavilion by local design company Old School Fabrications, and set within the beautiful surrounds of Edinburgh University’s Old College Quad.

Inspired by the 2017 International Festival show Letters Live, the creative writing and visual art project asked teenagers from nine secondary schools across Edinburgh to consider how they might impact the future. The resultant installation charts the hopes and dreams of its artists, allowing visitors to explore how young people perceive their adult lives unfolding.

The final exhibition reveals the funny, secretive, ambitious, and self-conscious observations of the authors, providing a candid insight into the teenage psyche. The exhibition is free to view and will be open to the public until 28 August.
