      CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT & 1st CALL FOR PAPERS

       

      Human Rites and City Lights:

      Balancing socio-cultural, artistic, tourism and commercial dimensions of festivals

       

      Bratislava, Slovakia 18th – 20th March 2009

       

      Building on the established collaboration between the Centre for Tourism and Cultural Change (CTCC) and the International Festivals and Events Association (IFEA), this conference will again bring together international researchers with policy makers and practitioners in the festivals and cultural events sector. The conference will discuss the complex relationships between tourism and festivals, focusing in particular on achieving balance between social, artistic and commercial aspects of festivals. The conference will take place in Bratislava, Slovakia and will form the research stream at the 18th Annual Conference of IFEA.

       

      Conference Aims

       

      Festivals and cultural events of all kinds are of growing interest to policy makers and practitioners in the arts, community development, regeneration and tourism. This interest and involvement gives rise to a number of critical questions concerning the relationships between these sectors in the development, management and evaluation of festivals and cultural events. The conference aims to share the latest research findings and debates in these areas of critical concern for researchers, policy makers and practitioners alike.

       

      Themes of Interest

       

      Key themes of interest to the conference include:

       

      • Economic development policy and regeneration dimensions of festivals and cultural events
      • Partnerships and collaborations in festival planning, management and performance
      • Festivals as product and packaging opportunities for the tourism sector
      • The contribution of festivals and cultural events to place images
      • The re-structuring, re-shaping and re-animation of city spaces and new communities through festivals and cultural events
      • Festival and event 'legacies'
      • Emerging tourist market trends and their implications for festivals and cultural events
      • Service quality management at festivals and cultural events
      • Economic assessments of festivals and cultural events
      • Managing risk and visitor behaviour at festivals and cultural events
