STRANGER IS PRESENT
Can the cultural establishment minimise the anxiety of losing its “whiteness” and decolonise by rethinking the raison d’être of the stranger, bringing together diverse stakeholders and their tangible and intangible heritage into an inclusive fabric? This talk is a brief interrogation of that existential dilemma and understanding the stranger.

Seventh International Conference on Tourism & Leisure Studies | Responsible Post Pandemic Tourism: Built Environment and Design Excellence | 27-28 June 2022
2022 Special Focus—Responsible Post Pandemic Tourism: Built Environment & Design Excellence
The pandemic has become an opportunity to stop, reflect and rethink what tourism and the leisure spectrum will be all about in the future. The paradigm shifts call for diversifying visitor experiences, considering sustainable alternatives, and moving from “mass tourism” and “over-tourism” to a “distributed tourism” that benefits a network of local community groups in both the formal and informal sectors. In this future, what kind of built environment/s do we envisage? As “designing” is a ubiquitous process that offers the vehicle to improve lives and experiences, what variety of design options and challenges do we consider? These, and many other questions, will be raised in the heart of the two-thousand-year-old spice trade – Muziris, Kerala. And of particular focus, based on this local context, the role of creativity, festivals, and biennales, in facilitating the “design” of transformations will be interrogated. It will be a shared dialogue and discourse through critical research and case studies between the Global South and North addressing all the 17 SDGs, with only eight years of the UN 2030 Agenda left!
