CfP: The State of the Art in Creative Tourism

The conference "The State of the Art in Creative Tourism. Leading Research | Advanced Practices | Future Trajectories" will take place 1-2 June 2017 in Coimbra. Creative tourism offers visitors the opportunity to develop their creative potential through participation in learning experiences that are characteristic of their travel destination, to deepen contact with the local culture and to being involved in the creative life of the destination. This approach allows the destination communities and regions to benefit from significant advantages, and enables artistic and other creative activities to play a driving role in broader socio-economic development. The conference has the aim to bring together leading creative tourism researchers with networks and practitioners to the state of the art within creative tourism research and practice. What are the leading trends and contextualizing influences today? What are the key questions and issues to be addressed going forward? The conference further wants to inform about the creative tourism network CREATOUR focusing on small cities and rural areas of Portugal. Deadline for proposals is February 14, 2017.

Taking responsibility for the visitor economy - Call for Papers

Since the banking crisis in 2008 there has been much talk of responsibility and responsible capitalism amongst politicians, business leaders and academics. Although the concept has been more extensively used in the last five years than in the previous ten years it has not been subject to any concerted effort to understand the meaning of responsibility in the visitor economy.
 
The conference will be practice-led, focusing on the work of industry leaders. It aims to deepen and extend the dialogue between business and academia about the nature of responsibility and how it informs leadership and relations with the social, physical and global environments. A key theme will be how business and academia can work together to create a culture of responsibility that supports enterprise, exploring ways of integrating respons-ability more effectively into decision making and the development of employability skills.

Soundtracks: Music, Tourism and Travel

As an expression of culture, a form of intangible heritage, a signifier of place, and a marker of moments, music provides an important and emotive narrative for tourists. Indeed, it is increasingly difficult to imagine tourism ‘in silence’, outside of the scores and songs which accompany and punctuate journeys. From touristic performances of traditional dance, pilgrimages to the homes and graves of composers and singers, impromptu street entertainments, tours to concerts, attending festivals, to the sounds of the car radio, the travelling with ipods and the ‘muzak’ of hotel lifts, music can both activate and shape the journey, and passively permeate its duration. Music can both define and transcend the borders of destinations, emphasise and challenge notions of tradition, provide opportunities for liminal play, transgression and resistance and, help define the identities of visitors and the visited.
