2nd ROMA CULTURE FAIR AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALICANTE

The 2nd Roma Fair will be held at the University of Alicante from 4 to 6 November. The event offers a wide range of activities aimed at promoting and bringing a variety of aspects of gipsy culture closer to the attendees, always from an academic and cultural perspective. The fair is sponsored by the Alicante Provincial Government and co-organised by the UA, IUDESP (Inter-University Institute for Social Development and Peace), and the Autonomous Federation of Roma Associations in the Region of Valencia (FAGA).

The objective of the initiative is to explain the tight links between Spanish and roma culture that have been established throughout their over 500 years of coexistence, for the only way to understand both cultures and the relationship between them is to analyse them separately and also understand the links that tie them.

The activities programme is a way to bring roma culture closer to the visitors and to also give them a wide range of information through games and entertainment activities, so that they can learn and enjoy roma community.

ACTIVITIES PROGRAMME:

Activities will start on 4 November, at 10.00 a.m., in Plaza de Europa, where the roma flag will be flown. Shortly after this event, at 11.00 a.m., an information stand will be inaugurated in the Main Library gallery. Visitors to the stand will also have the opportunity to participate in the “romametre” game, where they will have to show how much they know about roma culture.

November 5 is the International Romani Language Day, and so the first activity will be a poetry reading in Romani, which will be held at 12.00 at the Main Library gate. Finally, a hug workshop will be held on November 6 from 10.00 a.m., also in the Main Library gallery. All activities are free and open to the public.
