THE FUTURE is a collaboration between Amy Gear and 300 young artists from five Shetland schools.

The second project in a four-year gallery education programme, supported by Children & the Arts and delivered by Shetland Arts in partnership with SIC Creative Links, the project involves schools in Sandwick, Aith, Fetlar, Baltasound and Whalsay, and involves around 300 pupils from 5-14 years of age.

Working with artist Amy Gear and editor JJ Jamieson, and focusing on animation and storytelling, this year's project explores the future – what will Shetland look like 300 years from now? Who will be living here in the year 2317? The young artists' responses culminate in the work on show at Bonhoga and online at
