HERITAGE TOURISM SURVIVAL KIT IN THE WORKS
The National Endowment for the Arts has provided a grant to the
National Trust for Historic Preservation to create an online survival
toolkit for cultural and heritage tourism attractions and organizations.
As part of this effort, the National Trust will seek and share creative
strategies that cultural and heritage attractions are using to survive
and thrive in a down economy. The creation of this toolkit offers an
opportunity to provide assistance to the cultural and heritage tourism
The Heritage Tourism Program will survey cultural and heritage
organizations and attractions this fall as the first step towards
creating this toolkit. While the toolkit development effort will
continue through the fall of 2010, toolkit resources will be posted on
www.culturalheritagetourism.org and www.preservationnation.org as
they become available.
As a first step the National Trust wants your help to identify
potential resources and possible case studies that should be included in
this toolkit. Contact Amy Webb, director of the National Trust's
Heritage Tourism Program, at amy_webb at nthp.org or (303) 413-1986 with
your ideas and suggestions for the toolkit.
