What is Culture Tourism for City Breakers?

Culture Tourism for City Breakers – culture content for the urban travellers – brings together the different actors in the culture scene: cultural practitioners, 3rd sector actors, artists, art institutions, cultural managers, and students of tourism and culture productions, as well as tourism industry actors: tourist agencies, incoming agencies, and regional tourism operators.

CTCB will produce a series of co-developer forum events in three cities: Helsinki, Lahti and Jyväskylä in Spring 2019.

Expert Keynote speeches will be organised at the co-developer forum, in order to shed light on the newest trends in the culture tourism scene. Participants will also be introduced to the leading actors in the field, as well as best practices. In addition, co-creation workshops will be organised for professionals from the culture and tourism industry. The co-developer forum will be free of charge. The sign-up form will open in January 2019.

The project is financed by the European Social Fund and executed by Metropolia University of Applied Sciences, Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences, Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences and Lahti University of Applied Sciences.
