International Roma Day at ERIAC

A ROMA POEM THAT SHOULD BE READ THIS MONTH

International Literature Campaign

 

On International Roma Day, ERIAC celebrates the contributions Roma poets have made, and continue to make, to the richness of European literature. Contrary to the common perception of Roma culture as a-literary and insensitive to written word, ERIAC wants to visibilize and acknowledge Roma literary creations. On this occasion we ask the ERIAC community, together with contemporary Roma poets, scholars, public figures, and artists from across the global diaspora to choose one Roma poem that should be read this month. We are collecting the video contributions through our Facebook page and via e-mail. The collected videos will be broadcast on the ERIAC website, ERIAC youtube channel and Facebook page. The final compilation of the International Literature Campaign videos will be shows in ERIAC Office and Art Space.
