A week in Lesser Poland Voivodeship

“Between 3th and 8th of November we got the chance to participate in a workshop at Sucha Beskidzka, Poland. We were hosted by the University College of Tourism and Ecology in this beautiful city, which is surrounded by the Beskidy mountains.

We gained a lot of new experiences and knowledge on Brand Research and Incubator of Startups in the Economy Area. We had the opportunity to create valuable relationships.

Although the weather was rainy, and our timetable was eventful, we had the chance to get to know our fellow participants from Italy, England and Poland. And for sure, we could not miss the must-see part of Sucha Beskidzka with it’s 400 years old famous pub and the building of the University which is in the Castel. On Wednesday we had the chance to travel to Auschwitz/Birkenau to get a picture of what they did in the infamous death factory and working camp. On Thursday at the Ethnographic park in Zubrzyca Gorna we could experience the rural polish lifestyle how did they lived in the old times, and we learnt the process of making bread from the very first steps. In the evening of the Last day we had a banquet accompanied by polish musicians with traditional polish foods.

We had a marvellous time in Poland, and we hope we can continue cooperating in this this useful and valuable project.”

Book on festivals published

Exploring Community Festivals and Event

Exploring Community Festivals and Event

A book was published with title “Exploring Community Festivals and Events” edited by Dr. Alan Clarke, Associate Professor at the Faculty of Business and Economics, and his colleague Allan Jepson.

Exploring Community Festivals and Events

Edited by Allan Jepson, Alan Clarke

The development of the festival and event industry has seen large scale growth and extensive government support as a result of objectives to enhance and project the image of place and leverage positive sponsorship and regeneration opportunities. As we move deeper into austerity measures prompted by economic recession, community festivals and events as a sacred or profane time of celebration can be considered even more important than ever before.

This book for the first time explores the role and importance of ‘community’, ‘culture’ and its impact through festivals and events. Split into two distinct sections, the first introduces key themes and concepts, contextualises local traditions and culture, and investigates how festivals and events can act as a catalyst for tourism and create a sense of community. It then questions the social and political nature of festivals and community events through examining their ownership. The second section focuses on communities themselves, seeking to examine and discuss key emerging themes in community event studies such as; the role of diaspora, imagined communities, pride and identity, history, producing and consuming space and place, authenticity, and multi-ethnic communities. Examples are drawn from Portugal, the Dominican Republic, the USA, Malaysia, Malta, Finland and Australia making this book truly international.

This significant volume will be valuable reading for students and academics across the fields of Event, Tourism and Hospitality studies as well as other social science disciplines.
