ATLAS Cultural Tourism Special Interest Group Creative Tourism Network® SETBA, Zona d’Art, Barcelona EXPERT MEETING ON ALTERNATIVE AND CREATIVE TOURISM IN CITIES June 13th-14th, 2013, Barcelona As cities increasingly engage in a competitive struggle for attention, community cohesion and inward investment, they are trying to distinguish themselves through the development of distinctive products and experiences based on ‘alternative’ and ‘creative’ forms of tourism. In many cases the growth of mass cultural tourism in cities has increased the flow of tourists to fringe areas in the suburbs or in the inner city, where attractive alternative ‘scenes’ have developed. Examples include DUMBO in Brooklyn or Hoxton in London. These development have been signalled in a number of studies, but so far there has been no structured overview of the field. The aim of this expert meeting, therefore, is to bring together an international group of scholars to consider the issues raised by alternative and creative tourism development in cities, and to think about the ways that these might develop in future. The group welcome theoretical and speculative contributions to the debate, as well as empirical studies that can further our knowledge and understanding of the phenomenon. Themes expected to be covered during the event include: • Alternative tourism, on and off the beaten track • New tourism areas in cities • Creative tourism development and marketing • Alternative events • Ethnic quarters and creativity • Alternative and creative gastronomy • Alternative accommodation as creative strategy (design apartments, couchsurfing, house swapping, etc) • Critiques and empirical evaluations of creative development strategies The Expert Meeting is designed as a small-scale event for researchers to present and discuss their work with colleagues. Participation in the meeting is subject to approval of an abstract and preparation of a draft version of the paper prior to the meeting. Selected papers will then be published in an edited volume.
