Title: "Creative Tourism, a tool for the local development and the preservation of arts"

Description: ppt
A new generation of tourists is rising: the creative tourists. These are persons interested in being a active part of the
 touristic experience in which they can contact directly with the local community and their cultural way of living. In these experiences the tourists are invited to participate in active activities related with local culture and learn about the local traditions. Since 2 years we have been working in this issue and recently, with the Loulé Council, we develop a project called "Creative Loulé". A activity agenda has been prepared, involving a local network, with several experiences: craft workshops, gastronomy, photography, architecture, sport, etc. In this conversation we will talk about this issue and this project.
