Event Tourism and Cultural Tourism

Dwyer, L,
Wickens, E
Routledge

Event and cultural tourism as a social practice is a widespread phenomenon of global socio-economic importance. The purpose of the book is to bring together current thinking on contemporary issues relating to the management and marketing of cultural events and attractions. The contributions to the book provide interesting perspectives on a number of topics including innovation in festivals, destination and event image, cultural events and national identity, religious festival experiences, effective management and marketing of events. The book is divided into two broad themes: event tourism and cultural tourism. The Cultural Tourism theme covers issues such as: socio-cultural and environmental impacts of tourism development; tourist experiences, motivations and behavior; development of cultural tourism; hosts and guests; Community participation; living heritage; and destination image and branding. The Event Tourism theme covers issues such as economic, socio-cultural and environmental impacts; tourist experiences, motivations and behavior; development of event tourism; event management and sponsorship; destination image and branding; and planning and marketing hallmark events. The book is in response to the increasing demand for empirically-based case studies on event and cultural tourism and will appeal to both academics and practitioners. Case studies are also ideal as teaching material for both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes internationally. This book is a special double issue of the Journal of Hospitality Marketing and Management.

Offentlig støtte til privat innovasjon - omfang, varighet og gjengangere

Rybalka, M.
Økonomiske analyser

Skattefunn-ordningen, innovasjonsprogrammene til Innovasjon Norge og næringslivsprogrammene til Norges forskningsråd er blant de viktigste virkemidlene for forskning og utvikling (FoU) og innovasjon i Norge. Hvem bruker disse støtteordningene? Er det noen mobilitet blant brukere av hver ordning over tid? Hvor menings- fylt er det å sammenlikne effekter av ulike typer virkemidler? Dette er problemstillinger i denne analysen som undersøker graden av gjentatt bruk av offentlig støtte samt interaksjon mellom ulike virkemidler.

All work and no pay: consequences of unpaid work in the creative industries

Siebert, S. ,
Wilson, F.
Work, Employment and Society

This research note evaluates the benefits and pitfalls of unpaid work as an entry route into employment in the creative industries and investigates the consequences of this practice for those who already work in the sector. Based on a qualitative study of perspectives of stakeholders in unpaid work, this article argues that the social capital thesis, often used as a rationale for unpaid work, inadequately explains the practice of unpaid work experience, primarily because it does not take cognisance of the consequences of this practice for other people working in the sector. The study also highlights methodological issues that need to be considered in the future. As well as the importance of a plurality of stakeholder perspectives, the study emphasizes the need to consider the perspectives of those who are excluded from unpaid work and those who are potentially displaced by it.

Art as collective action

Becker, H.
American Sociological Review

Art works can be conceived as the product of the cooperative activity of many people. Some of these people are customarily defined as artists, others as support personnel. The artist's dependence on support personnel constraiizs the range of artistic possibilities available to him. Cooperation is mediated by the use of artistic conventions, whose existence both makes the production of work easier and innovation more difficult. Artistic innovations occur when artists discover alternate means of assembling the resources necessary. This conception of an art world made up of personnel cooperating via conventions has implications for the sociological analysisof social organization.

Artists as entrepreneurs, Fans as workers

Wade Morris, J.
Popular Music and Society

This paper uses the increasing integration of social media into music making andmarketing to reflect on the work artists and their fans perform. While new technologies
are celebrated for making cultural production more accessible, there is also more pressure
on artists, as cultural entrepreneurs, to produce and distribute their own work. At the
same time, fans are facing greater invocations to participate through overt calls to become
co-creators or through more passive participation like behavior tracking. Fans cannot
really consume without working. Using an analysis of British musician Imogen Heap—
including press articles and data scrapes from Heap’s social media accounts—this paper
focuses on the changing occupational and creative roles for artists and fans and the
attendant implications for the circulation of cultural goods.

Competitive Dynamics of Southern California's Clothing Industry: The Widening Global Connection and its Local Ramifications

Scott, A. J.
Urban Studies

A general outline of the functional and spatial characteristics of the clothing industry in Southern California is sketched out. Two important trends are noted: the increasing design- and knowledge-intensive structure of the industry; and, the marked increase in off-shore sub-contracting by local manufacturers that has occurred in recent years. The predicaments and promises of this situation are explored. Will the industry simply continue to lose its employment base in the region? Will it succeed in making the transition to the status of a major world centre of fashion? It is argued that the southern California clothing industry is potentially capable of rising to the latter challenge, although it remains strongly overshadowed by the New York industry in terms of both fashion significance and commercial reach, and it also retains strong elements of its traditional underbelly of sweatshops. It is further argued that considerable effort needs to be invested in building social infrastructures to reinforce current positive trends in the industry. Given the right kinds of private and public response, it is submitted that Southern California is capable of becoming an international fashion centre on a par with New York, Paris, London or Milan.
