Elements of events’ institutionalisation and signals of a serious risk of vanishing in the post-disaster transitioning context are discussed.Originality/valueThe study involves development of a theoretical framework for analysing the temporal process of evolution of a local system of cultural events as instruments for place-making and capacity building in a post-disaster town.
