Event Details

The three strands of making (for example, DIY engineering and design projects, 3d printing); coding (computer and web programming); and crafting (including traditional skills like knitting and weaving) represent a growing trend of personal and collaborative creativity in Scotland. This invitation-only roundtable session will hear from people and organisations doing work in these areas, and look at possible joint working opportunities to explore the implications of thinking about 'creative futures' in this way. These implications may touch on learning, innovation, the arts, business and beyond.

We will spend the first hour engaging with short presentations about a range of projects from across the three strands, and the second hour discussing potential collaborations and next steps.

The roundtable is hosted by Scotland's Futures Forum, and organised by Jen Ross from the University of Edinburgh (and Beltane Parliament Engagement Fellow).

Scotland's Futures Forum

Scotland's Futures Forum was created by the Scottish Parliament to help its Members, along with policy makers, businesses, academics, and the wider community of Scotland, look beyond immediate horizons, to some of the challenges and opportunities we will face in the future.  Looking beyond the 4 year electoral cycle and away from party politics, the forum seeks to stimulate public debate in Scotland, bringing fresh perspectives, ideas and creativity on how we might prepare now for the future.
