People who have saved this event:


Award winning photographers, Tina Carr and Annemarie Shöne set out at the beginning of May 2009 on a journey from the UK to Hungary to meet, speak with, listen to and work with Roma individuals, groups and agencies; documenting aspects of their lives,


Staying on campsites in Budapest and travelling in their converted van to a Roma settlement in the North East of Hungary during their visit, they have spoken openly with Roma people about their present lives and surroundings and how they see the future. The project has engaged with the community to explore expressions of current identity and the advance of Romani culture. In seeking to document the voices of Roma people, Tina and Annemarie hope also to articulate community ideas about what has to alter in order to progress in harmony with the environment, be it the surrounding natural habitat or gadje society. An exhibition at Oriel Myrddin Gallery during January and February 2010 will document in photos, video films and text the Roma voices, pictures and words gathered along the way.
