'Uncovering cultural DNA of place, and activating for local development'
8 - 12 July, 2019, HIESE Smart Rural Incubator, Penela, Portugal
The Centre for Social Studies of the University of Coimbra and CREATOUR: Creative Tourism Portugal invite you to participate in an exciting new summer school, 'Uncovering Cultural DNA of Place, and Activating for Local Development.' The 5-day intensive advanced training course offers the opportunity to enhance your knowledge and to gain skills on cultural mapping techniques and culture-based development strategies. This is a unique opportunity to learn from internationally acclaimed scholars and practitioners, including Lia Ghilardi who has led OECD workshops and is a specialist consultant in the field of culture and local development planning; Kathleen Scherf, an expert in deep mapping and place-making in small cities; and Nancy Duxbury, an international expert in cultural mapping. The immersive course will include learning seminars featuring leading methodologies; daily tours to a variety of significant heritage sites in the region; and hands-on workshops where participants will actively engage in creating a solution for a place-related real-life local development issue. Based in central Portugal, in the magical town of Penela — which features a picturesque castle, a series of Roman village sites with intact mosaics, and a network of caves — you will be introduced to one of the lesser known gems of Portugal.
