2011 (English)In: Local Development and Creative Industries: empirical, methodological and theoretical reflections / [ed] Conny Pettersson, Dorit Christensen, Visby: Gotland University , 2011, 99-123 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
This chapter focuses on the relationship between cultural heritage and local and regional entrepreneurship in an attempt to discuss the unstable nature of heritage and suggest some ways of using it effectively. As case studies and examples, the tourist destinations ”Gold of Lapland” and ”Cultural Heritage Marieholm” are used. The present research is based on qualitative interviews conducted with key actors involved in the two projects, particularly those who actively participated in their day-to-day operations. Further interviews were later conducted with nearby residents in order to determine their view of what is happening on a local level.
