Festivals, Events and Eventful Communities (New)
The creation and promotion of events such as festivals, exhibitions, shows, fairs and celebrations are important components of cultural practice throughout the world. At local, regional, national and international levels, events make important contributions to tourism, social life and identity as well as to economic and cultural development.

You are able to apply the lessons learned to specific events in your local community, region or country and to develop policies that support eventfulness.
