Creative tourism as a strategic approach for decolonial thinking and doing in Namibian tourism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


This chapter explores how creative tourism can be applied as a strategy for decolonization, inclusion and participation. Creative tourism is about engaging tourists in activities that stimulate them to use their creative potential and confidence in a cultural tourism setting. Creative tourism can occur through either total immersion in cultural activities, for example singing, crafts production, painting, or through less interactive roles, such as being spectators in a concert, museum, or more informal cultural settings, such as community theatres or cultural events.
