ERIAC is excited to officially announce the recipients of grants through the #ERIACNET4EU initiative. A significant amount of €170,000.00 has been allocated to support a total of 12 grants, thoughtfully given to ERIAC member organizations from 7 EU member states. This effort has been possible thanks to funding from the European Commission under the Citizens, Equality, Rights, and Values Programme (CERV).

 

In September, ERIAC will hold a comprehensive training session, designed to help the successful execution of these upcoming projects. We wholeheartedly encourage our grantees to foster collaboration not only among fellow grantees but to extend this collaboration to encompass ERIAC members who were not successful in their application endeavors. Keep an eye out for more information about #ERIACNET4EU.

 

We invite all forms of support that contribute to making bigger and more meaningful changes. If you’re interested in actively taking part in promoting a more inclusive Europe and tackling the harmful effects of anti-Roma racism, we warmly encourage you to consider making a pledge or donation through our organization. Also, we’re excited to welcome engagement to support our valued member organizations in different ways.

 

Your commitment and support play a crucial role in our shared journey toward a fairer and more harmonious society.

The symposium encompasses a diverse array of participants, ranging from painters, sculptors, and photographers to filmmakers, writers, and cultural commentators. Beyond fostering artistic creation, the symposium provides a dynamic platform for interdisciplinary discussions, facilitating the exchange of insights into the Roma community’s global context. Notably, it delves into the role of art in Roma political mobilization. Jaw Dikh! serves as a nexus for collaborative engagement, encouraging dialogue, and extending support among artists. As a burgeoning network of European Roma artists, it actively contributes to preserving traditions, affirming identity, and dispelling self-doubt. Central to its mission is the cultivation of a contemporary Roma identity—one that embraces diversity as a source of richness and collective strength, rather than an impediment. This inclusive approach transcends geographical boundaries, uniting Roma from various backgrounds in a shared pursuit of empowerment and cultural rejuvenation.

RESILIENCE ILLUMINATED: THE LEGACY OF RAYMOND GURÊME AND THE FIGHT AGAINST ANTIGYPSYISM

 

 

Country/Location: France

 

Grantee: National federation of associations working in solidarity with Roma and “Gens du voyage”

 

Project title: A story of struggle : a documentary about Raymond Gurême

 

Implementation dates: September 2023 – September 2024 (12 months)

 

ERIACNET4EU grant offer: € 15,000.00

Total project value: € 191,975.00

 

 

Project description:

 

With the support of ERIAC and the European Union, the FNASAT organization is embarking on the “A Story of Struggle: The Raymond Gurême Documentary.” This project aims to chronicle the life of Raymond Gurême, a remarkable survivor of World War II internment camps and a prominent figure in the fight against antigypsyism. The documentary will spotlight his experiences, including the often-overlooked nomadic internment in France from 1940 to 1946, shedding light on this lesser-known history. Inspired by Gurême’s courage and dedication, the film seeks to inspire new generations in the battle against antigypsyism. It serves a dual purpose: commemorating the Roma and Sinti persecution during WWII and addressing the contemporary challenge of antigypsyism. By amplifying the voices of young Roma and Sinti individuals, the documentary underscores Gurême’s lasting impact on their commitment to combat discrimination. Presented in French with English subtitles, the documentary ensures accessibility to a wide European and international audience. Through this lens, “A Story of Struggle” will honor Raymond Gurême’s legacy while contributing to a vital dialogue on antigypsyism.
