On Thursday 21 June at 7pm at Rivington Place (London), as part of the exhibition Roma-Sinti-Kale-Manush, and to mark the Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month, Autograph ABP presents ‘Images and words: communities telling their own stories’ a discussion between Eva Sajovic, photographer and Christine Eyene, art critic and curator.

Sajovic will introduce two participatory projects conceived in collaboration with Gypsy, Roma and Travellers: Be-Longing (Travellers’ stories, Travellers’ Lives), a project developed in 2009, and DreamMakers, an ongoing work with young Gypsy Roma Travellers.

This discussion will be followed by a response from Nando Sigona, social scientist and co-editor of ‘Romani politics in contemporary Europe: poverty, ethnic mobilisation and the neoliberal order’ (Palgrave, 2009). Sigona will introduce a special issue of the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies coming out in September, entitled ‘The Roma in the New EU: Policies, Frames and Everyday Experiences’ guest edited by himself and Peter Vermeersch.
