Time – 7:30 – 9:00 PM Indian Standard Time

Layers of significance inform the rich diversity of textiles. It is critical to tease out, understand, assess and contextualise the associated values to safeguard them. Textiles are as fluid as the looms on which there were/are woven. What are the significant pathways in conserving them? How do we collect and establish a representative list as we endeavour to facilitate intergenerational transmission of textile knowledge? How can we associate the folk life and design of textiles bridging the gulf between the tangible and intangible? In what ways can the continuity of textile heritage inform contemporary fashion? Is fashion a means for safeguarding the intangible heritage of textiles? These and many other questions will be addressed in the Heritage Matters Webinar 24.

Context: COVID 19 has opened up opportunities to: address inequities in the system to embed sustainable in SDGs/BLM; transform education and workplaces to rebuild the way we do things; rethink leadership as transformative, inclusive and collaborative; scope with immediacy new approaches to climate crisis; and address culture as an integral part of UN Agenda 2030.

Seventh International Conference on Tourism & Leisure Studies | Responsible Post Pandemic Tourism: Built Environment and Design Excellence | 27-28 June 2022

SPECIAL FOCUS  |  THEMES & TENSIONS SCOPE & CONCERNS  |   PROGRAM

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!
