Artsadmin and Forest Fringe present

Future Editions
A human library from across the city of Edinburgh

Forest Fringe Main Hall
11 Aug - 12 Aug 2010, open 3pm - 5pm

Artsadmin is creating an unusual conversational event with the celebrated venue Forest Fringe during the Edinburgh festival.

Taking the form of a human library, Future Editions harnesses the passions of 30 specialists from across the city, revealing their visions of what the future might hold for their particular field. The library will include, among many others, a champion wrestler, an ornithologist, a top Arts critic, a sociologist and a consultant in Emergency Medicine.

The Future Editions library will be open for two afternoons only, with guest artist Richard DeDomenici on hand as maverick host librarian. Members of the public are invited to borrow a book at random from our very special collection for a 10-minute conversation in the Main Hall at Forest Fringe.

To book a free slot to talk about what the future holds with a book chosen at random, please contact Cat Harrison cat@artsadmin.co.uk or call Artsadmin on 020 7247 5102.
From 10 August all bookings will be taken in person at Forest Fringe or via Artsadmin on 07974 208279. Booking is highly recommended, as the number of seats is limited.
