This dialogue explores the different partnership models in the fields of urban regeneration. Many of these models have gone onto create islands of culture in the middle of throbbing economies which have developed lasting employment and revenue generating avenues for the citizens of these locations. In many cases, community and conservation-led development can work to create a sense of pride in local communities which boosts confidence for newer realms of economic activity to emerge. When encouraged and supported, these communities are rich banks of knowledge which can also offer unique experiences to domestic and international tourists. It is through these restoration efforts that communities are sustained through culture, at the same time as rejuvenating local economies.
