RomaMoMA – The Digital Roma Museum was launched in the framework of ERIAC’s Roma Cultural History Initiative financed by the German Federal Foreign Office (FFO).

RomaMoMA is part of the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC)’s International Membership Engagement Initiative. Building on previous international cultural outreach projects, the International Membership Engagement Initiative, financed by the German Federal Foreign Office, aims to facilitate and strengthen the engagement of Roma and non-Roma individuals and organizations who are committed to ERIAC’s values to support the exchange of creative ideas across borders, and to promote Roma organizations, intellectuals, and artists to form multilateral initiatives and regional alliances.
