Tourism and the Creative Industries

This book focuses on the theoretical, policy and practice linkages and disjunctures between tourism and the creative industries. There are clear and strong intersections between the sectors, for example in the development and application of new and emerging media in tourism; festivals and cultural events showcasing the creative identity of place; tours and place identities associated with film, TV, music and arts tourism; as well as particular destinations being promoted on the basis of their ‘creative’ endowments such as theatre breaks, art exhibitions and fashion shows. Tourism and the Creative Industries explores a variety of relationships in one volume and offers innovative and critical insights into how creative industries and tourism together contribute to place identity, tourist experience, destination marketing and management. The book is aligned with the sectors that have been demarcated by the UK Government Department of Culture, Media and Sport as comprising the creative industries: advertising and marketing; architecture; design and designer fashion; film, TV, video, radio and photography; IT, software and computer services; publishing and music; performing and visual arts. The title of this volume demonstrates how the exclusion of tourism from the creative industries is arguably perverse, given that much of the work by destination managers and of private sector tourism is characterised by creativity and innovation. Interdisciplinary research and international context bring a broader perspective on how the creative industries operate in varying cultural and policy contexts in relation to tourism. This book brings together the parallel and disparate inter-disciplinary fields of tourism and the creative industries and will be of interest to students, academics and researchers interested in tourism, creative industries, marketing and management.

?There is no single definition of creativity. It is as wide-ranging as the people who seek it: writers, painters, musicians, actors — indeed anyone who desires a richer, more rewarding life. Many consider it inaccessible — limited to gifted artists and celebrities. But as the extraordinary contributors to this book show, it is really everyone’s birthright, too often shoved to the recesses of our psyches by the demands of everyday life. From the vibrant naturalist and poet Diane Ackerman, to musical theorist Don Campbell, to inspirational author SARK, these talented contributors guide us through the creative process with clarity and insight. They remind us that inspiration is always available to those willing to realize the power and possibility of their true creative being. Contributors include: Diane Ackerman • Pat B.
