Creative Industries and Citizen Cultural Participation in Rural Multicultural Communities

The ninth project workshop took place on the 10th of April 2014 at the West University of Timisoara, Romania. 

The full-day programme included presentations, case studies and discussion on the relationships between creative industries, cultural heritage and rural communities. 

A special focus is on the communication of heritage of multi-ethnic communities and regions like the Banat, which spans areas of Romania, Serbia and Hungary. Methods for (re-)activating local heritage (e.g. craftsmanship, local products, music) and connecting rural communities to creative industries will be explored. 

Furthermore, going beyond a simplistic rhetoric of “diversity as richness”, issues in the participative communication of multi-ethnic cultural heritage will be discussed.

 The workshop was followed on the 11th of April by a tour to rural communities in the Rudaria area of the Banat, including participation in local festivities.
