The Survival of the Independent Producer
In this multi-generation era, big cities are no longer the only choice for most people. More and more people decided to begin their journey from self-discovery in their local community. Not only do they find their foothold locally, but they also draw attention to and distinguish the local community on a global scale. The characteristics of the local community gradually formed a strong and shining gem – the cultural energy, developing a ‘more local, more global’ trend, encouraging more people to return to their hometowns, find their roots and promote their local communities, in order to boost the local industries development and the cultural tourism economy. Let’s dig into the successful case studies of unique places, together we discover possibilities of artistic revitalization.
