Sat 30 July - Fri 5 Aug 2022
Space is available on this event! :-D
This is a relaxing holiday week in community with other families and individuals. Children of all ages will find something for them at Othona this week. Adults too, as long as they haven't totally lost contact with their inner child!
We'll have beach, artspace, games, music etc. But also there’ll be chances to discover more of Dorset together, with an intriguing twist.
Have you ever felt, when you’re a tourist, that you’re being sold a sort of artificial package? Then you might enjoy a bit of Counter Tourism!
On three days we will arrange a group outing to a heritage site or other tourist attraction (sharing cars as necessary).
While we are there those of us who want to can “playfully subvert the packaged experience offered up to us, using tactics inspired by the Counter Tourism Handbook (Crab Man 2012)” and guided by Andy Howlett and Liberty Rowley.
What does this mean? What is Counter Tourism (CT)?
Just READ MORE to find out.
