Community Arts Project with Roma youth in Govanhill. The launch is at Govanhill Baths on Tuesday 11th December from 5pm-7pm.
"Groups of young people from Roma, English Gypsy, Irish Traveller and Non Roma backgrounds in 4 different locations UK-wide (Glasgow, Bolton, Peterborough and Walthamstow) will be equipped with journalistic skills and the tools (photography, sound, video) to go out into their communities to research, record and discuss issues of relevance in their communities which impact on the aspirations of young people through a process of social documentation.
The aim of this project is to attempt to dispel prejudices among Roma, English Gypsy and Non Roma, encouraging the groups to work together, sharing skills and experience, towards a celebration of culture, a fusion of tradition and modern attitudes and to look forward to the future. It is also hoped that the project would be sustainable, serve as a model for inter cultural exchange and promote positive relationships using technology."
