Cultural Tourism

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi

Aim

A broad aim of the course is to introduce the concept of Cultural Tourism and create an awareness about  the  importance  and  fragile nature  of heritage  places,  collections  and  living  cultures that foster the capability and prospects of such concepts in India whilst working towards achieving a sustainable future for them.

Content

As per the ICOMOS International Cultural Tourism Charter (1999): “Tourism itself has become an increasingly complex phenomenon, with political, economic, social, cultural, educational, bio-physical, ecological and aesthetic dimensions. The achievement of a beneficial inter-action between the potentially conflicting expectations and aspirations of visitors and host or local communities, presents many challenges and opportunities.” The course is an attempt to explore and assess these various dimensions of Cultural Tourism. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities that tourism provides for ‘authentic’ cultural exchange between locals and visitors. In the Indian context, cultural tourism may include aspects related to heritage, pilgrimage, spirituality, crafts etc. We will discuss these aspects with help of case studies. A special field visit will be designed for practical experience of some of the key aspects related to cultural tourism.

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi

Aim

The broad aim of the course is to introduce the philosophy and practices of adaptive reuse for historic properties.

Content

This Master class will explore the key issues – what is heritage, importance of heritage properties, significance of their adaptive reuse and how it can be done. The discussions will illustrate the notions of ‘value’ and ‘significance’ associated with historic fabric and the ways in which this can inform the approaches to conservation. It will also discuss the concepts of tangible, intangible and living heritage and debate about the future of the past. The focus of this course will be on identification, documentation and reuse of historic interior spaces and architecture. Some of the key questions that we will collectively address will be:
  • What is a historic interior space?
  • How can historic interiors be modified/upgraded for adaptive reuse without compromising the values and significance of the place?
  • What are the various conservation approaches to address the conversion of historic buildings for contemporary uses?
  • How to address the challenges of conservation economics?
  • What are the challenges of introducing modern facilities and amenities in a historic property?

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course the participants should –
  • Develop an understanding of the concept of ‘heritage’ and its adaptive reuse.
  • Gain introduction to the notions of value and significance associated with cultural heritage.
