Introduction

From the beginning of time, human movement and settlement patterns were solely dependent on basic human needs such as food, water, and trade. Today, and as we progressed into the 20th and 21st Centuries, these factors continue to influence patterns of the diaspora in different forms and with different motivations such as education, social betterment, and financial restrictions that were all usually coupled with necessity. However, in the contemporary and developed world, essential travel developed into a widespread activity of the masses supported by diverse services. As a leisure activity, according to Appadurai in 2002, Tourism represents an exchange of culture and plays a significant role in understanding the world we live in.

In recent times, the inter-relationships between tourism, culture, and heritage have been the center of discussion among scholars and researchers at both national and international levels. Yet, there remains a need to better comprehend this link existing between culture and natural environment as a way of protecting and re-creating its resources. This link between culture, environment, heritage, society, and economics, known as the inextricable link, forms the basis of sustainable development and tourism. With a current failure to put theory into practice and words into action, there is a persistent need for practical solutions to achieve sustainable tourism.

That's why The 2nd International Conference on "Cultural Sustainable Tourism (CST)" will be held in collaboration with Instituto Universitário da Maia - ISMAI, at Maia of Portugal, from the 13th to the 15th of October 2020.

The International Conference on "Cultural Sustainable Tourism - 2nd Edition" focuses on discussing the complex relations between culture, heritage, sustainability, and tourism. It showcases the different methods and trending strategies for preserving, spreading, and improving cultural and architectural heritage for the following decades. It focuses also on addressing the existing tensions in the assessment of cultural meanings and values to better understand tourism in the context of and in relation to preservation and sustainable development of cultural diversity and heritage resources. Provided that the tourism sector is becoming more and more willing to engage in the sustainable development scheme, key concepts and topics shape this conference’s agenda starting with policy and planning goals, whereby tourism is integrated with different development aims, to issues of structure and governance as well as heritage, sustainability, and biodiversity.

CST-2020 is a platform to spark discussion on emerging research methods on sustainable tourism that draws on integrated methods from many other disciplines such as Economics, Architecture, Geography, Sociology, and Management. It paves the way for researchers, professors, planners, architects, and stakeholders to take part in conveying and spreading awareness of the importance of cultural tourism as well as its development.

Moreover, this international conference avails the opportunity for interested researchers (authors) from around the globe to submit their research papers and get them published in highly-ranked international journals by the esteemed publishers Springer and IEREK Press. Noting that submitted researches must be in the scope of at least one of the official conference topics and abiding the submission instructions.

Your Trip To Maia, Portugal

Maia is a prosperous city in Portugal, close to the airport and with a few market-leading companies in its boundaries. There are medieval and Baroque churches and graceful old estates for 18th-century nobility.

The following are some suggestions of places to visit while you are in Maia, Portugal:

1. Santuário de Nossa Senhora do Bom Despacho

This dainty Baroque church dates to 1742 and is photo-worthy both inside and out.
It’s spectacular on a sunny day, as the facade is clad with blue and white tiles and looks amazing against a clear sky.
These tiles cover almost every surface, even the three-story bell-tower, and are set off by stone pilasters and scrolls and two large blue painted doors.
The inside shine for that mid-18th-century gilded woodcarving that enriches many of the churches around Porto.

2. Fórum da Maia

If something cultural is happening in Maia you can be sure that it will be at this immense concert hall, which was unveiled back in 1991. There are four auditoriums, with one outside, as well as five separate galleries, a cafe, and a bar.
The Fórum has a very lively schedule, with touring rock and pop ensembles, folk musicians, dance and plays.

3. Mosteiro de Leça do Balio

From afar you could easily mistake this medieval monastic church for a castle.
It has a square, crenelated tower with pointed merlons and arrow loops and only a few narrow openings in its walls.
This hardy appearance dates to the 14th century, in a period when Castilian forces attacked Lisbon and Porto.

4. Museu de História e Etnologia da Terra da Maia

In the Vila do Castêlo da Maia, this history and ethnology museum is set in an 18th-century mansion that was the seat of the local government until 1902.
It’s somewhere to connect with Maia’s rural past, in a place that was devoted to cereal and livestock farming until the 20th century.
There’s a display of traditional irrigation technology and tools for a variety of traditional professions.

5. Casa da Música

Just 20 minutes on Metro Line C is Porto’s acclaimed concert hall, the design of which was led by none other than Rem Koolhaas.
It has been compared to Gehry’s Guggenheim in Bilbao, and is such a beloved landmark.
There’s no lack of cool stuff to see inside like the two gargantuan glass walls (Casa da Música is the only concert hall in the world with two glass walls), or the VIP Hall, covered with traditional Portuguese azulejos.

Workshop

Between Present and Past:
Shaping Contemporary Culture, Class and Identity through Imagery
Duration: Monday 12 – Friday 16 October, 2020 (5-day workshop)

 

One of today’s most affordable and prominent form of art is photography. The evolution of photography over the years can now be seen in methods of digital manipulation and post production. However, new ways of thinking and approaches to this medium have resulted in a contribution more significant than ever. With the ‘concept’ in mind, a more meaningful debate is generated among the wider photographic community and general public. It could be reason to provide a voice for those lacking power or perhaps shed a light on a current issue that deserves attention. Through photography, a new definition of visual culture can be generated.

Similarly, and from an anthropological point of view, a visual image can embody the identity of a person, a group or a place through a combination of objective techniques and artistic practices. By viewing its landscapes, villages, traditions and practices, one could gain insight into a nation through the created imagery of a defined place. By presenting the habits, routines and styles of people, the breadth of identity, class, culture and even patterns of a place can be explored in photographs.

Held in Parallel to IEREK’s Second Edition of the International Conference on Cultural Sustainable Tourism (CST), this intensive 5-day workshop facilitates an exploration of the different ways contemporary photography can contribute to the visualization and portrayal of cultural identity and class.

Using a case study to be introduced, the workshop introduces advanced technical aspects of photography as well as the use of different elements and post-production techniques to develop a project that focuses on the shaping of contemporary culture and its relation to cultural heritage as well as the identity of a place, Portugal, and how they can be visually represented.
