We Express Roma Identity

We Express Roma Identity

The project is supported by OSI/ACNP Talent Casting Initiative. The purpose of the project was to motivate Roma children from locations in the South of Moldova to manifest their spirit of ethnic identity through a series of activities with cultural character (paintings, cooking, poetry etc.) meant to combat negative stereotypes and prejudices about Roma. As a result of the project a team of young activists with a strong sense of identity and will to participate in their community was created.

The project was marked by the Friendship Exhibition on the occasion of Roma International Day, where Roma children together with non-Roma children presented a complex festive program to the Cahul public at large. The program included Roma music and dance, a photo and art gallery, poetry recitals and the Roma cuisine corner.
