Conceptualizing & Enhancing
Your Tourism Experience

Calling all artists, artisans, musicians, dancers, cooks, farmers, nature enthusiasts, history buffs, storytellers and other creatives! During the Conceptualizing & Enhancing Your Tourism Experience workshops in January, participants will learn the basics of how to share their cultural practice and earn extra money by offering an engaging, paid tourism experience. Throughout the one-day workshop, each participant will fill out a concept worksheet, completing each section through hands-on activities and discussion. Equipped with this worksheet, you'll leave the workshop with a roadmap to launch your tourism experience to visitors. 

Watch the video for an overview.
