The number of cultural festivals and carnivals has seen huge growth in recent years. A free one-day seminar at City University, 9.00am – 7.00pm, Friday 26 October 2007, entitled Exploring Festival Economies, will look into this phenomenon, including
• economic impact, tourism, and urban regeneration
• management, professionalisation, and commodification
• funding, sponsorship, and cultural capital
• institutional relationships and ownership
Academics and students with a research interest in festivals, carnivals and events are welcome to attend. Admission is free, but pre-registration is required by 12th October 2007 at www.celebrating-enterprise.org.uk.
