Just like modern day tourists, the tourism industry has been on a steady, fast paced journey due to technological evolution. With the affordability and easy accessibility, traveling potential has greatly increased. Sometimes, it is the destination that matters along with the people you go on the voyage with. This paper will analyze Isla Holbox as a cultural destination.
The Bay Area is one of the most financially exhaustive places to call home in this nation, thus it is no surprise to say that even a “comfortable living” in cities such as Berkeley or San Francisco places one relatively high on the annual income scale. The city of Berkeley, my hometown, is an amonole: distinct from other conventionally affluent cities across the country such as Irvine. Berkeley has always been baked with a splendor of various cultures showcased through the multitude of ethnicities, advanced tastes in art and music, along with an unapologetic exemplification of the sense of self whether it may be through clothing, sexual orientation, conduct, etcetera. With this and Bourdieu’s ideas on habitus -the
Due to the many cultures, Paterson is home to many prestigious art and music academies. Concerts range from reggae, salsa, and African music which can be heard all year long. The art exhibits and shows are amazing. Being able to see art from so many different cultures in such a small city is hard to believe. Furthermore, someone can easily feel overwhelmed by the amount of different cultural exhibits they can view.
In light of the growing Latino population in Indianapolis, the event shines a light on the many organizations that support diversity within the workforce and cities initiatives to accept cultural backgrounds. Each facet of Indianapolis offers a cultural aspect to welcome acceptance for those who live in and visit the area. Each notable infrastructure in Indianapolis embraces a cultural inclusion to show the city’s acceptance and the impact of diverse populations within the mile square. This correlates with the city’s promise to provide a sustainable community and neighborhoods that are inclusive and
Growing up in a city known as the big melting pot, or big gumbo; New Orleans, La has many different cultures and is a very diverse city. Personally, I love the mixed culture of people from different background, beliefs, and way of living. At the same time, this intangible mixture can cause a lot of trouble and disagreements. From inside school grounds, to outside, cultures clash. During this month of August everyone is reminded of Hurricane Katrina and I cannot help, but to think about how during that experience so much trouble was going on between the different cultures in the city. Through that experience I also saw the entire city bind together and unify during the historic New Orleans and Atlanta Monday night football game. During that
The “ Keep Indianapolis Beautiful” organization is the reason there is a great appreciation for art, nature and sense of community in Indianapolis. As we know it today, Indianapolis is at its highest peak in employment and rated as one of the best cities to relocate to in America for better careers and quality of life. However, back in the 1940’s Indianapolis was referred to as a “raw, dirty and unkept city…”, a city people should avoid. Gangs, drugs, loitering and other illegal acts surfaced many neighborhoods and communities during that time. Considering where Indianapolis is today, one would never believe this city used to be ins such despair. Thanks to many civic leaders, devoted women and passionate residents, Indianapolis went from a trashy, neglected city to a place of beauty, pride and opportunities. Throughout this profile, I will identify how KIB’s legacy was created, its contibution to social capital through “private action for public good”, and why KIB is vital for not only Indianapolis, but the world in its entirety.
Our accomplishments lie precisely in our ability to engage our community and maintain, preserve and promote the rich cultural heritage of our people. We are pioneers in reclaiming lost and forgotten cultural
In a nation that advocates freedom of religion, this right does have its boundaries. While there are traces of religion in our government, such as the pledge of allegiance and on the dollar bills, it does not attempt to advocate any specific religion. In this case of a cross on City A’s City Hall, it can raise certain issues with the Establishment Clause.
As described in Social Class Matters, placement in a class system can occur through ascription or achievement. The class that a person is ascribed to or achieves greatly correlates to the privilege in their life, and can determine many things in life – access to quality education, availability of medical care or living conditions. Social class matters as it can almost pre-determine the quality of life that a person will lead.
This February I attended the Asheville Mardi Gras Parade downtown as my cultural event. The parade moved through the South Slope brewery district, and featured a wide array of floats, costumes, and music. For example, the Ashevillage People had a float designed to emulate a phoenix with flames surrounding it. I had a fulfilling time, and it was a very enjoyable way to spend a few hours seeings the community of Asheville come together and see all the attractions. Asheville is very well known for its wide range of arts and culture, and that really was apparent during the Mardi Gras parade in the great variety of depictions all inspired from various regional cultures. Western North Carolina has its own, unique way of life and I was glad to see Mardi Gras adapted to work with it so effortlessly and beautifully.
Prince George’s Annual Traditional POW Wow is an event put on by the Prince George Friendship Centre, it takes place at the Carrie Jane Gray Park. It is rich in energy and historical popular culture. Hosting the powwow is a way of ensuring the rich heritage of the aboriginal people is preserved. The word Pow Wow, or pau wau, means a gathering of people coming together to trade. Explorers misinterpreted the ceremony of medicine men dancing, thinking all natives gathered to sing and dance in this manner.
The creative class initiatives are the key force for the economic growth in the post-industrial phase when service sectors outweigh the manufacturing sector. Consistent with the creative class, promoting art and culture based on the art tour is a suitable idea to help the southwest Iowa communities to grow. In addition, it also promotes the region encouraging people to visit and moved to the following cities. According to Zachary Mannheimer, the director of the Des Moines Social Club, if the city wants to stimulate the economic growth, it should invest in the arts rather than get started in the jobs, this investment will make small communities achieve optimum results quickly. Furthermore, the agencies use events as a tool of the attraction of people and companies showing that the region is a viable place to live. The trend observed is that events make an interconnection of the individuals with the community and it is a very good idea to connect communities through art. Therefore, three recommendation are the key to the success of the cities in the southwest of Iowa. First, it is mandatory to stimulate partnership between communities among arts groups, communities, and organization. Consequently, the events can turn into a potential tool to offer a cultural education for the community and create a program of school-based art education for the residents. Second, the civic engagement of the community is an important strategy to achieve the results. When the community works together, it makes the difference for the future, based on the developing knowledge, skills, and values to promote the quality of life. Finally, developing and build an environment audience is a key to reach and involve more citizens based on the cultural development. The fact of involving more people in the plan it is a way to leverage the community,
Economic capital is very distinguished in that it can be in the form of a property right, but social capital and cultural capital are a little confusing. Why can’t social and cultural capital be tied together? I understand that they are both “convertible”, so why can’t social capital be a subtopic of cultural capital instead of a whole new topic under capital? The only difference that I see is that cultural capital is in forms of educational qualifications and social capital is in forms of title of nobility. So can someone obtain the status of both social and cultural capital in the same context?
Given the fact that the city’s downtown district and main point of attraction is marketed as “The Arts District,” the community’s appreciation and support for artistic creativity is to be expected. The unexpected element that specifically Carmel provides is that this support is directed towards all local proponents in the area. In analyzing the recent advertisement for a community art fair (see Appendix B), this concept is more than clear. The poster, marketing the Carmel International Arts Festival, advertises the twentieth running of the event that showcases local artists of all backgrounds, mediums, and interests. At this event, artists (regardless of their skills or expertise) are able to generate self-exposure, sell their work, and introduce more of the community to their cultures and talents. These opportunities for local artists can serve as a means for many of them to use their artwork to earn their
