Round up: Dream of the future with Imagine 2037

| by Harriet Guest

Imagine 2037 is a festival of imaginary performances created by artists who are migrants. It kicks off on 19 August and celebrates the 20th anniversary of the British Council's Edinburgh Showcase by looking to the future and highlighting the founding principles of the Edinburgh Festivals — providing a meeting point for people from different places to understand each other

Artists from across the world imagine Edinburgh in 2037

Drones, flooding and dystopian rituals: announcing the eight artists selected for Imagine 2037. We've commissioned these artists to write texts that describe an imaginary performance to take place on Arthur's Seat overlooking Edinburgh in 20 years' time.
