A new collection describing what may lie ahead for Orkney. From Nobel prizewinner Seamus Heaney to Orkney poet Robert Rendall, OIC Convenor Stephen Hagan to Orcadian, Big Brother celebrity Cameron Stout, 49 views of the future to inspire and encourage.

'Orkney Futures... is a handbook like no other. For a small book, it tackles ambitious themes.' Ron Ferguson

'Such books, or public-actions, bridge art and social thinking - a gentler and therefore more penetrating form of thinking seems to emerge, when we look to the future in this designated non-designated space...' Alec Finlay

'I'm sure this slim book is one of the most important to be published in Orkney for a long time.' Howie Firth

'An excellent production. The quality and variety of contributions is hugely impressive.' Liam McArthur MSP
