A festival of science, music, art and literature begins in Dundee this week.
Dundee University will be bringing a series of performers, authors, experts and artists to the city for the Festival of the Future, which runs from Wednesday, October 17 to Sunday October 21.
The diverse programme of more than 40 events includes exhibitions on the human body, author talks, children’s games and workshops and debates about the city’s past, present and future.
Highlights include Scottish Dance Theatre’s “playroom performance” exploring the work of romantic poet William Blake, a Star Wars-themed droid programming workshop and a space-inspired adventure morning hosted by children’s illustrator Nick Sharratt.
There will also be a new photographic exhibition, Moving Jamaica, examining the connections between Scotland and the Caribbean island.
Those with a passion for crime can come along to a talk by author Hannia Allen where she will discuss her latest crime novel featuring Dundee.
Husband and wife team Marisa Haetzman and Chris Brookmyre, who write under the pseudonym Ambrose Parry, will be discussing their new book The Way of All Flesh.
Dundee singer Be Charlotte will also be debuting the musical results of her collaboration with scientist Dr Kate Stone.
Festival manager Anna Day said: “The festival comes at an exciting time for the university and the city.
“It’s an evolution of the Dundee Literary Festival and Women in Science – a chance for us to shout out loud about absolutely everything that the university and the city is brilliant at.”
The full programme of events can be found online at the Dundee University website.
