Online Workshop: Eventful Communities: the Strategic Use of Festivals and Events

Events such as festivals, exhibitions, shows, fairs and celebrations are an important cultural practice that contributes to tourism, social life and identity. Throughout the world, events support the economic and cultural development and regeneration of cities and towns.

Using case studies, focus on understanding the objectives of different kinds of events, and understand how events can help fulfill broader objectives. Distinguish between events that take place in communities and the strategy of eventful communities. Explore the strategic and practical issues of creating, planning, promoting, financing and managing cultural events.

Throughout the workshops, you’re encouraged to ask questions and interact with your peers, and share your experiences about how events have contributed to your city’s development.

Our cultural planning workshops are designed to fill the gap between a short webinar and a longer online course. Led by international cultural experts, workshops combine presentations and group discussion over three 2-hour online sessions. You can access an online discussion board to share information and for group discussion during the three weeks. These workshops aren’t graded.
