Opening Festival “Performing RomArchive”

 

Starting in January 2019, RomArchive, the Digital Archive of the Roma, will make Romani arts and cultures visible and illustrate their contribution to European cultural history. For the first time, counter-narratives told by Roma themselves will create an internationally accessible, reliable source of knowledge on the internet, which will counter stereotypes and prejudices with facts.

To mark the publication of the archive website, the interdisciplinary festival “Performing RomArchive” will show the wealth and diversity of Romani cultural and artistic production. The programme in Berlin, Bucharest and Budapest will surprise, inspire and stimulate discussion.
