Cultural festivals, carnivals and special events are a prominent feature of arts and cultural activities at the local, national and international level. Through a series of international and local case studies this subject examines the cultural, economic and artistic origins of and rationales for these events. The role of programming, artistic direction and audiences will be explored in order to appreciate the diverse range of interests that served by such events and the social and political contexts within which they take place.
