Collaborating to Address Cultural Tourists’ Interests for Experience

by Gaylene Carpenter (Arts & Administration Program, University of Oregon)

This paper considers contemporary practices designed to provide cultural tourists with experiences in art and culture. These opportunities were collaboratively developed through partnerships formed with tourism and art and cultural organizations having an interest in providing cultural tourism opportunities to visitors. Examples from four cities (i.e., Philadelphia, Portland, San Diego, and Tacoma), and two western regions (i.e., Pacific Northwest and California) are given to illustrate trends in collaborative efforts to promote art and culture. Benefits for visitors and partnering organizations and communities are discussed.
