What do we mean by Creative Tourism?
Creative Tourism is considered a new generation of tourism that involves the tourists themselves and the locals in the creation of the tourist product (co-creation).
The concept of Creative Tourism appeared in the 2000′s, and is defined as: “Tourism which offers visitors the opportunity to develop their creative potential through active participation in courses and learning experiences, which are characteristic of the holiday destination where they are taken.” (Crispin Raymond and Greg Richards, 2000).
