ConferencesCREATOUR 2nd International Conference – Emerging and Future Trends in Creative Tourism, University of Minho, Portugal, 7, 8 and 9th June 2018. Proposal Deadline: 31 January 2018.

The conference is organized within the project CREATOUR: Creative Tourism Destination Development in Small Cities and Rural Areas. The Conference aims to continue the works developed in the first Conference at Curia (May 2017). It will bring together creative tourism researchers with creative tourism networks that will discuss the research and practice of creative tourism.

The project builds on three interlinking dimensions of recent cultural and creative industries development in Portugal: (1) the development of artistic and creative industry hubs (“arts centres” or “creative factories”) in repurposed former industrial buildings or in restored heritage sites in many small cities and rural areas; (2) growing attention to the (re)vitalization and valorization of tangible and intangible cultural traditions throughout the country; and (3) the growth and development (and heightened visibility) of culture and design-related creative products in Portugal.
