Ostrich eggshell and spinifex: The enacted art experience in sustainable tourism

Activity: PresentationConference presentation


One avenue towards sustainable futures is connecting humanity through arts and culture-based methods. Connections between environments, individuals and communities come about through affective and attentive embodied participation. In processes of making bodies are ‘bundels of affect’ that pay attention through the anatomical connections between them and the environment and instruments within those environments (Ingold, 2018). In bodily spaces, where environments are included, attention is given to reassemble materials in affective ways during art and culture making processes (Ingold, 2018; Sarantou 2017). In other words, making processes actuate the affordances within environments into new outcomes for sharing, enjoyment or caring (Sarantou, Akimenko & Miettinen, 2018). The aim of this paper is to encourage arts and cultural-based methods to be more widely adopted in tourism education as one avenue to sustainable tourism.
