Getting to Know The Roma

Getting to Know the Roma was series of sessions building trust and friendship across cultures. We listened to music, danced, decorated photo frames, created art and documented our activities through photography and film. For the final session of the project we worked together to create a celebratory food event for both Bristol’s Roma and the city’s wider community.

Our project demonstrated that, by recognising and respecting differences while at the same time transcending them through creativity and play, the arts have the power to promote change. Getting to Know the Roma was a community arts project in partnership with the Wellspring Healthy Living Centre, funded by Bristol City Council’s Creative Seed Fund.
