In the last decades, we have seen the emergence of festive invention
as a factor of sustainable development in rural contexts, associated to
the dissemination and promotion of cultural products and practices,
which express different motivations. In Portugal and Spain, the
relation between festivals, music and sustainable development has
become an object of study, drawing on musical celebrations that
allow for the creation of informal networks and participatory models
among cultural agents, musicians and community members. With this
text, I intend to question the phenomenon of festive invention in
Baixo Alentejo as a strategy for sustainable development focusing on
Mértola’s Islamic Festival and Barrancos' "Noche Flamenca". In my
analysis I take into account the motivations and impact of festivals
organized and promoted by municipalities and cultural agents, in the
construction of possible futures.
