Numerous changes taking place in modern society, be they economic, technological, climatic, political or any other nature, affect the relatively sensitive tourist market in different ways. Demand is changing in terms of demand and the paths to a satisfied tourist today are completely different than maybe just a decade ago. This is largely due to changes in the value system, so more valued healthy, comfortable, new, different, simple, natural, cultural, urban and as much as possible adapted to the specific wishes of potential market segments.Content buyers want to learn, get to know, remember something that will deepen their knowledge, enrich it, enrich it and contribute to the quality of their lives. It can be assumed that in the future, which brings an increasingly hectic everyday life, cities and other environments will try to create their own identity systems of tourist offer that will offer people an “escape” from the hustle and bustle, vacation, attractive leisure content…The most beautiful feature of a tourist offer that has the greatest potential for the cause of all the consequent changes in the cultural offer, economic profit and the economy as a whole are the manifestations. In the next few lines we bring you a wonderful synergy that is happening in Split. Split, which is a mirror of the cultural offer of our Dalmatia in the summer season, in its preseason offers equally valuable content based on different values, values that promote modern culture and even more beautiful, through the academic community that seeks to connect and cooperate internationally.That is why you must visit Split and the art festival until May 19 “Split Art Convention”. The festival is conceived as an international platform for the exhibition and presentation of contemporary student works, and their connection through cooperation and socializing. The long-term goal is to set the festival on an international level, provide students with the opportunity to present themselves and set the city of Split as an ideal platform for further development of contemporary art. In addition to exhibiting finished student works, the goal is also educational.Ivana Kovač, a student of classical composition at the Rotterdam Conservatory of Music, will hold a lecture on “Independent Artists and the Sustainability of Entrepreneurship in the Arts” on Wednesday (May 17) at 16:00 pm in the Multimedia Hall of the University Library in Split (Ruđera Boškovića Street 31). Students of the Faculty of Philosophy in Split will hold workshops; “Media and Art and Their Influence on Children’s Attitudes Toward Art” through Thursday at 10:00 a.m. (May 17) and the workshop “How to Encourage a Child to Create?” Also at 10:00 a.m. (May 18). Both workshops will be at the Peristyle at Poljana kraljice Jelena 1.All those interested will have the opportunity, with the expert guidance of students of the Faculty of Philosophy in Split, to see the core of the city of Split in 19: 00 hours. The route will start next to the model of the city of Split on the waterfront, and will end in Loggia (Golden Gate) where 20: 00 hours start another exhibition of students from Split and Zagreb.For lovers of contemporary music, a concert of electronic music will be held on May 17, 05 at 2018:20 PM in the Concrete Cinema (MKC), and a concert of young student songs will be held on May 00, 18 at 05:2018 PM in the Gothic Hall of the City Museum. composers from all over Europe. Numerous artists (Kažimir Hraste, Ivan Božičević, Mišo Komenda, Karlo Kazinoti…) will be happy to talk as part of Artist talk which will be led by students of the Faculty of Philosophy in Split, while poets from the Faculty of Philosophy on Thursday (May 17) at 18:00 in the cafe Tinel (within the student dormitory Franjo Tuđman) will present their poetry to be read by actors from the Academy of Arts in Split .The closing of the festival will be marked by the performance of the S / UMAS Contemporary Music Ensemble, which will play in Diocletian’s Cellars on Saturday (May 19) at 20:00. After the First International Festival Split Art Convention, the band RØLØ will be in charge of socializing, playing from 21:00 in the club Cirkus Split – Monty Python.Split has once again shown that it works to create culturally inspired tourist facilities, because the city is becoming the basic space of culture of the future, then it is possible to assume that city identities will surely become a cultural phenomenon in the future, and therefore an increasing offer of attractiveness. is culture largely recognized as a vital development segment of tourism through the domain of “cultural tourism” which, in addition to the traditional focus of valorization of cultural and historical heritage, also activates new cultural and creative production as part of the tourist offer.This is the level of functioning of communities in which identity issues become the critical point of a new understanding and practice of community. Culture today in modern tourism has not only a perceptual role, but it is also an important content of the stay in which tourists are active participants. Moreover, culture becomes not only one of the more important contents of a stay, but often also the main motive for traveling to certain destinations.
In this Aug. 14, 2018, file photo, former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Tony Dungy speaks during a Buccaneers NFL football Ring of Honor news conference in Tampa, Fla. (AP Photo/Chris O’Meara, File)TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tony Dungy will always be appreciative of the opportunity the Tampa Bay Buccaneers provided when no other NFL team was willing to take a chance on him as a head coach.So long after transforming the Bucs from laughingstocks into championship contenders — only to be dismissed a year before the franchise won its only Super Bowl — the Hall of Famer is graciously returning to Raymond James Stadium to become the latest member of the club’s Ring of Honor.“I was fired from here, but I was also hired here,” Dungy said, not a trace of bitterness in his voice. “I was hired when I never had been a head coach. None of the other 31 teams gave me a chance.A coaching disciple of Chuck Noll, Dungy won a Super Bowl as a player with the Steelers and later became an assistant in Pittsburgh. Dungy was the defensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings when the Bucs called in 1996.Tampa Bay hadn’t had a winning record or made the playoffs since the 1982 strike-shortened season.“We needed a head coach who could foster a winning culture,” said owner/co-chairman Bryan Glazer, whose father, Malcolm, hired Dungy and remained supportive when the Bucs began the young coach’s first season with five consecutive losses.“Despite the losing record,” Bryan Glazer added, “you could see we were building something special.”The Bucs won five of seven down the stretch to finish 6-10 in what turned out to be the only losing season Dungy would have during a highly successful 13-year run as coach of the Bucs and Indianapolis Colts.In a way it’s fitting he will enter the Ring of Honor on Monday night, when Tampa Bay (2-0) hosts the Steelers (0-1-1). Much of what he sought to do when he joined the Bucs he learned from his one-time mentor, Noll.Dungy wanted a team that not only won games and contended for playoff berths, but in which players connected with the city, got involved in the community and were role models on and off the field — like the Steelers.“He really shaped the identity of our whole organization,” Bryan Glazer said.The Bucs ended their long playoff drought in Dungy’s second season. In 1999, they came within one victory of reaching the Super Bowl.Two years later, the Glazer family fired Dungy, who was unable to get the team beyond the opening round of the postseason in 2000 and 2001.A long, meandering coaching search ended with the Bucs trading four draft picks and cash to the Oakland Raiders for the right to sign Jon Gruden, who — led by a dominating defense built by Dungy — brought Tampa Bay its lone NFL title in the 2002 season.Four members of that championship team — Hall of Famers Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks, John Lynch and Mike Alstott, as well as Gruden and Malcom Glazer — are members of the Ring of Honor.Dungy was disappointed to not have a chance to finish the job, but went on to greater heights in Indianapolis, which won the Super Bowl in the 2006 season.His 54-42 regular-season record and .563 winning percentage with the Bucs are the best in franchise history. He led the team to four playoff appearances in six seasons and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016.“You think about coaching, you think winning seasons, you think about getting to the playoffs, you think about getting to the Super Bowl, all those things you hope and dream about,” Dungy said. “It’s not even in your mind to go in the Ring of Honor. It’s an awesome, awesome tribute and honor.”Five coaches whom Dungy hired as assistants in Tampa Bay — Mike Tomlin, Lovie Smith, Jim Caldwell, Herman Edwards and Rod Marinelli — went on to land NFL head coaching opportunities.Dungy and Smith met in the Super Bowl won by the Colts. Tomlin led the Steelers to the NFL title two years later.Tomlin, in his 12th season in Pittsburgh, was a young college assistant when Dungy brought him to the Bucs.“I could talk, I wouldn’t know when to shut up. Coach just provided a daily blueprint on how he approached it. He was himself every day. It was a steady focus and compass through unsteady waters that can be (encountered) in NFL seasons,” Tomlin said.“Guys knew where they stood with him. A clean communicator, and I think those are some of the key ingredients that allowed him to be successful,” Tomlin added. “Successful in multiple places, successful for a period of time.”Dungy’s impact on the Bucs is undeniable.And, he was — and continues to be — even more influential in the Tampa Bay community through various charitable endeavors.His name will be unveiled in the Ring of Honor on Monday night, however that’s just a small part of his legacy.“I hope they remember me as someone who helped shape the course of the franchise, got people excited about Tampa football again,” said Dungy, who maintained his home in Tampa, even while coaching the Colts.“I hope they remember me as a coach who had very good teams, but had some great young men playing and that I tried to lead those young men in the right way, in the right direction. That my focus wasn’t just on winning games, but it was on being the best we could on and off the field,” Dungy added. “If they think that, I’d be happy.”___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/tag/NFLfootball and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL
