Find Your Identity - Be Young Be Roma

Between 24-28 November, in Cullen Street we organise activities for the children's.  
We start with the draw of what mean for them the word Roma and what is Tigan. After this we spoke about the Roma history and the culture to understand why is more good to call us Roma and no gipsy, tzigania or tigan. Was a day with a lot of emotions. We learn "Gelem Gelem" that is our anthem and that we are a nation with a flag and a international language. They were very enthusiasm to hear that we come from India, but also surprised that in Romania our ancestors were for 500 years slaves. In the same day we spoke also that we need to be proud that we are Roma and we start the week with the slogan Be Young Be Roma.
