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 illiterate and insensitive to the written word, ERIAC wants to visualize 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, Youtube channel and Facebook page. The final compilation of the International Literature Campaign videos will be shown in ERIAC Office and Art Space.
