Gypsy, Roma & Traveller Arts & Culture Symposium III

Gypsy, Roma & Traveller Arts & Culture Symposium III 

Taliesin Arts CentreSwansea University, Singleton Park, Swansea SA2 8PZ

Monday 1 October 2018 - 9.30am - 2.00pm

The Romani Cultural & Arts Company is pleased to announce the Gypsy, Roma & Traveller Arts & Culture National Symposium III.

The event, hosted by Taliesin Arts Centre, will feature artists Dr Daniel Baker and Daniel Turner plus guests including Dr Ethel Brooks, Associate Professor of Women's and Gender Studies and Sociology at Rutgers University, US and a Tate-TrAIN Transnational Fellow at the University of the Arts London, Rosamaria Kostic Cisneros, professional dancer, dance historian, critic, and Roma scholar of Coventry University, Dr Annabel Tremlett, Senior Lecturer in Social Work in the School of Health Sciences and Social Work at Portsmouth University and Isabel Raabe, co-founder together with Franziska Sauerbrey of the office for cultural affairs in Berlin who are also the instigators and coordinators of the international project RomArchive: Digital Archive of the Roma. This varied range of speakers with their diverse areas of expertise will open debate regarding the contemporary climate of GRT arts and the wider implications for society.


This exciting event will take place in the context of the Gypsy Maker 3 project; the unique RCAC venture that facilitates the development of innovative works by established and emerging artists from GRT backgrounds. The project aims to stimulate dialogue across communities about the ways in which art continues to inform the lives of individuals and communities today. For this third phase of the project the RCAC, in association with g39 gallery, toured an exhibition of newly commissioned works by Daniel Baker, Artur Conka, Shamus McPhee and Billy Kerry titled Shiftwork across venues in Wales.
"The arts bring enjoyment and inspiration to our everyday lives. Taking part in the arts, whether as an individual or a member of a community, helps bind us together in a celebration of our common humanity. But the arts can also help us to understand what is distinctive and important to protect in the differences that define us all.

The arts help us to explore and express the things we have in common and our place in the world. A fair-minded and tolerant society values and respects the needs, interests and creativity of everybody.

It's a society that's impatient of disadvantage, which embraces equality and celebrates diversity. We want the arts in Wales to include everyone. We know this will make the arts in Wales more vibrant, exciting and relevant. We warmly welcome the contribution that this second Gypsy, Roma & Traveller Arts & Culture National Symposium will make to that debate." Nick Capaldi, Chief Executive Arts Council of Wales

"I'm delighted that Taliesin is hosting the 2018 symposium and helping to break down the ignorance and prejudice that persists about GRT communities. Artists are again at the forefront of busting stereotypes and bringing light and understanding to what remains a serious problem in our society "-Sybil Crouch, Head of Cultural Services, Taliesin Arts Centre

'As representatives of an international project that itself seeks to break down prejudices through promoting culture and the arts, we are convinced that Gypsy Maker 3 will play an important role for the recognition and appreciation of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller culture-a culture that is centuries old, most lively and varied to this day.' Isabel Raabe and Franziska Sauerbrey, Project Initiators and Directors of RomArchive - Digital Archive of the Roma

We anticipate that this exciting half-day symposium and exhibition showcase will generate great interest so please book your place early to avoid disappointment by writing to The Romani Cultural & Arts Company at: isaacblake@romaniarts.co.<wbr />uk or register on Eventbrite https://www.<wbr />eventbrite.com/e/gypsy-roma-<wbr />traveller-arts-culture-<wbr />symposium-iii-tickets-<wbr />45552214901?aff=es2
